Yuka C. Honda is a Japanese composer/musician and producer residing in New York City. She is best known for the band Cibo Matto, which she co-founded with Miho Hatori in 1994 and in which Honda created a unique one-man band sound by triggering samples “live”.
Revert to the Sea, inspired by one of Yuka Honda’s favorite books, “Coin Locker Babies,” written by the Japanese writer Ryu Murakami in the 1980s, a new work in collaboration with Nels Cline (Wilco), Alex Cline, and Zeena Parkins where the musicians showcase the entire spectrum of sound.
IN THE ARTIST’S WORDS:
“A National Sawdust residency provides a deeper exploration of art internally. Being able to represent one’s work in such a professionally accommodating venue provides an incomparable opportunity.”
