Hiroko Komiya expresses the sound from the air, space, movements, inner body, memory and transforms into the sound without bound melody or rhythm.
She plays object sounds; stone, water, sea shells, toys, daily life objects and percussion; metal bowls, bells and voice.
Her musical idea is to remind us there is subtle hidden voice and whispering of each object/material themselves around us.  She let them out in resonance with respects for them.
Her sounds are said as if it’s blowing a new life into the objects, and her expression evokes new sensation to the breath or movement of listeners. As for the voice, her voice arises from inner body and brings back our lost memories.
Since 1999, she’s been working with Butoh dance performance and workshop of Atsushi Takenouchi as musician. Since then, all his works and live performances are created and played by her live music.

Being based in Europe since 2002, toured with performance, project and concert in France, Italy, Poland, Spain, Greece, UK, Holland, U.S.A, Canada, Chile, Brazil, Argentine, India, Thailand, Cambodia and Japan, etc.
Apart from dance, she collaborates also with film, sculptor, painter, poet, story teller, costume designer, various artists and performers for exhibition, installation, concert, performance.
