Extractions: http://thecity.sfsu.edu/~miya Miya Masaoka is a composer/kotoist performing acoustically and with the Laser Koto In her solo performances, she uses her background in Japanese court music, new music and improvisation to create a span from 9th-century Japan to sensor and digital technology. With an array of extended techniques that include strumming, bowing, scratching, and thumps, she uses fragments of koto-created sounds to weave an organic synthesis of the acoustic and electronic. Sometimes more acoustic, sometimes moreelectronic, she developes timbre - based motives, textures and loops. Using various triggering devices in tandem with live samples, ultra sound, light sensors and digital signal processing, Masaoka captures gestures of movement and sound that cross the lines of world music, jazz, new music, and electronics. She has collaborated with some of the most noted artists of the twentieth century, including Ornette Coleman, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Pharoah Sanders, Reggie Workman, Andrew Cyrille, Steve Coleman, George Lewis, Cecil Taylor and ROVA Saxophone Quartet. Her music compositions have led her to varied forms of media and performance. In "

CD-1023(1) Add to Shopping Cart The wildly adventurous music on this album is performed by two of the best California improvisers on the scene, and now their work can be experienced simply as a polished and imaginative performance. On the other hand, this music and its performers are situated in a particular political tradition of music-making, and this music will say more and, indeed, mean more if its social context is understood. Miya Masaoka is a composer, performer, and performance artist at the center of the Asian American new music scene in San Francisco. Trained on the Japanese koto, she has extended the instrument's possibilities not only through her base in jazz and new music but also through the innovative application of computer electronics. George Lewis is a composer, renowned trombone player, computer music specialist, and professor of improvisation and critical studies at the University of California, San Diego. Their mutual interest in the interface of technology and improvisation has consistently opened up new musical possibilities.
