Ryoko Akama

Ryoko is a sound artist/composer/performer, who approaches listening situations that magnify silence, time and space, offering quiet temporal/spatial experiences. Her sound works employ small and fragile objects such as paper balloons and glass bottles, creating tiny occurrences that embody ‘almost nothing’ aesthetics. She composes text scores and performs a diversity of alternative scores in collaboration with international artists. She runs melange edition label, amespace and co-edits mumei publishing.

About Composer-Curator 

Composer-Curator is Sound and Music’s national new music touring programme. First launched in 2013, it supports entrepreneurial artists from a range of disciplines looking to create their own opportunities by curating their own events – tours, festivals and concert series – and thus celebrates a step of change in the world of live music touring. Composer-Curator not only creates a space for artists to produce new work; it enables them to hone their curational skills, generating a more sustainable form of practice that can positively impact the new music sector as a whole.
