Sawako is a sound sculptor, a timeline-based artist and a signal alchemist who understands the value of dynamics and the power of silence.
Once through the processor named Sawako, subtle fragments in everyday life float in space vividly with a digital yet organic texture.
Sawako released her albums from 12k (USA), and/OAR (USA), BASKARU (France) and Anticipate (USA). She had collaborated or improvised with Taylor Deupree, asuna, HYPO, Ryan Francesconi, Toshimaru Nakamura, Ken Ikeda, Andrew Deutsch, Jacob Kirkegaard, Kenneth Kirschner, Daisuke Miyatani, Kyoka, Radiosonde, Haruka Nakamura, ARAKI Shin, AOKI Hayato, Ryuichi Sakamoto, among others. Her unique sonic world has been called “post romantic sound” by Boston’s Weekly Dig. 
She has performed internationally as an audio and/or visual artist in MUTEK (Canada): Warm Up at P.S.1, Armory Show, Diapason, Le Poisson Rouge, Tonic, Diapason, Monkey Town, Issue Project Room, Roulette, World Financial Center Winter Garden, Starbucks Salon, BAP Festival (NYC); Corcoran Gallery (Washington DC); UCLA Hammer Museum (LA); OFFF Festival (Lisbon); MACBA, CosmoCaixa, Sonar Festival (Spain); Glade Festival, Resonance FM, ICA (UK); Batofar (Paris); m12(Berlin); Offsite, Super Delux, Bullets, gift_lab, Vacant, Apple Store (Japan).
