Real Name: Sawako Kato

Location: brooklyn + tokyo + apple island, New York, US

Profile: Sawako is a Japanese sound artist based in Tokyo. She graduated from Keio University, SFC, Japan, in 2002 where she studied computing culture and sound with Christopher Penrose, as well as environmental information as interdisciplinary research.

Sawako's music is deeply contemplative with a strong aleatoric component. The control/uncontrol dialectic comes from her experience in art, documentary video, and workshops for amateur artists.
