Yui Onodera is a Japan-based musician and sound artist. He has released numerous works on esteemed experimental labels like
(USA), and more. His sound is largely based on field recordings (various environmental sound, electroanalysis sound of water, etc.), electronics and musical instruments, re-editing techniques, and dedicated software processes, for electro-acoustic pieces. He created those works in which he became even more involved in deconstructing sound images. The astonishing variety of sounds comes from sources that are concrete yet overwhelmingly invisible. All music in this stems from field recordings and musical instruments-but it does not simulate the natural reality of the original sounds. Instead, the work creates a sonic hyper-reality, a virtual world of sound.
