Yui Onodera

Yui Onodera is a Japan-based musician and sound artist. He has released numerous works on esteemed experimental labels like  KOMPAKT (DE),  Baskaru (FR),  Serein (UK),  and/OAR (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. 
He studied the Shō (Japanese free reed musical instrument) with Ko Ishikawa. Shō is one of the three main wind instruments in gagaku. He creating concert piece by Japanese tradition musical instrument and advanced technology for multiple speaker systems. It is an improvised, spontaneous, live performance in the spirit of experimental music, paired with influences ranging from computer music to original instruments, from classical minimal music to drone and noise. He has also produced collaboration works with artists from every imaginable genre: sound artists/professor at Virginia Commonwealth University Stephen Vitiello, composer/sound artists Scanner, Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra's clarinet and piano soloists Vadim Bondarenko, artist/sculptors Kenichi Kanazawa, butoh dancer/choreographers Yukio Suzuki, architects Ryuji Fujimura. 
He studied music and architecture, after working as an architectural acoustic designer, he has provided the music for films, contemporary dance/Butoh. As well as recorded works, he produces installation pieces, often using multiple speaker systems. His work connects the points between a bewilderingly diverse array of genres – a partial list would include sound design, film scores, contemporary composition, electronic/acoustic music, architectural acoustic design. Currently, alongside his musical profession he works as a music/sound art lecturer at Rikkyo University and Musashino Art University.
