Reiko Yamada

Amsterdam, NL   

Composer and sound artist Reiko Yamada is originally from Hiroshima, Japan. Her works includes chamber, orchestral and electroacoustic music, sound art installations and interdisciplinary collaborations. In recent years, her work has centered on a research in the aesthetic concept of imperfection in a variety of contexts, all the while maintaining a constant concern for empathy and carefully honest representation of the human and geographical contexts from which she finds inspiration.


Yamada holds a doctorate degree in composition from McGill University and has received numerous prestigious awards and fellowships, including a Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study fellowship (Harvard University, 2015-2016) and the Artist-in-Residency at the Institut für Elektronische Musik und Akustik (IEM, University of Performing Arts in Graz, Austria, 2016-2017).
