Hiroko Komiya

• Since 1996, she has studied percussion under traditional Indian music Tabla player Masahiro Bessho
• Started work with Butoh dancer Atsushi Takenouchi for making music for his Butoh performance and workshop since 1999
• Member of the Butoh Unit "Global Jinen"
She expresses the image which comes from the air, space, and own inner body, and transforms it into the sound without bound melody or rhythm. The sounds are quite simple and unique, and it exists as if the weather and environment. She uses natural material and essence. And she also use voice which is primal and native feeling.
