Multi-instrumentalist/composer based in Tokyo, Yuko Araki started playing piano when she was a small child and in her teenage years was inspired by hardcore and metal music, but she soon became really eclectic and took on a diverse range of projects. She’s currently the singer and electronic musician of the Acid House duo YobKiss, the drummer of the oriental/tribal dream psych band Kuunatic and one of the founding members of the Neo classical noise duo Concierto de la Familia. In 2017, she started her solo project: harsh noise drones layered by analog synthesisers, cymbals and samples of Japanese traditional instruments creating abstract rhythms and dissonant harmonies that sound like a noise orchestra. In 2019 she released her first EP “I” via Indonesian label Gerpfast Kolektif and her debut album “II” via Italian label Commando Vanessa delivering intergalactic noise fused synthscapes mixing pulsating rhythmic sound frequencies and powerful synthetic sonic layers, through her exceptional sound processing sensibility. She recently performed for Cherry Music and Sakura Festival in Denmark, Jogja Noise Bombing festival in Yogyakarta in Indonesia, DAO XUAN International festival in Vietnam and toured Europe for the first time.
