Back

Mieko Suzuki was born in Hiroshima and lives in Berlin. As a sound artist and composer, she is concerned with the materiality of time and space. In her DJ sets and performances, for which she uses drones, field recordings, the crackling of electrical circuits and fragments of vinyl records, she experiments with the unexpected and unconventional. In doing so, she combines the raw power of sound waves with the subtlety of modulations, making a space sonically experienceable. Her sound pieces work in a club as well as in dance performances and theatre, in the context of visual art and of haute couture. Choreographer Meg Stuart, theater director Johan Simons and avantgarde techno label Raster are among her regular creative collaborators. Mieko Suzuki is a member of the improvisation trio Contagious together with Andrea Neumann and Sabine Erkelenz. Their first album Contagious was released from Morphine Records in 2019. Since 2009, Mieko Suzuki has been running her own bi-monthly, multidisciplinary event Kookoo, together with Arno Raffeiner at OHM gallery in Berlin.
