kaori suzuki


Kaori Suzuki (b. Japan) is a composer of electronic and electroacoustic music based in Oakland, CA. She engages in different aspects of musical practice including instrument building for solo and collaborative performance, electronic synthesis, field recording, and studio composition. Her work considers the experience of inhabiting spaces of transformation, often emphasizing duration and dynamics through meticulous synthesis techniques. Having previously established a background in analog circuity design, her recent compositional projects extend to using computer programming in SuperCollider to explore the treatment of electronic sound spectra with articulated space and resonant acoustic materials. She is invested in early electronic instrument and archival sound studies, and is currently involved in an archival project at SFJAZZ for their historical recordings collection. She has presented and performed at various venues including Brava Theater and Berkeley Art Museum (SF/Berkeley), Jack Straw Productions, TUFFEST, Debacle Fest (Seattle, WA), MIX NYC, and S1 (Portland, OR).
