Sawako is a sound sculptor and a signal alchemist who understands the value of dynamics and the power of silence. Once through the processor named Sawako, subtle fragments in everyday life float in space vividly with a digital yet organic texture. Sawako released her albums from 12k (USA), and/OAR (USA) and Anticipate (USA). She had collaborated or improvised with Taylor Deupree, asuna, HYPO, Toshimaru Nakamura, Haruka Nakamura, Andrew Deutsch, Jacob Kirkegaard, Kenneth Kirschner, Daisuke Miyatani, Radiosonde, Ryuichi Sakamoto, among others.

She has performed internationally as an audio and/or visual artist in MUTEK (Canada), Warm Up at P.S.1, Armory Show, Diapason, Le Poisson Rouge, Tonic, Issue Project Room, Roulette, World Financial Center Winter Garden (NYC), Corcoran Gallery (Washington DC), UCLA Hammer Museum (LA), OFFF Festival (Lisbon), MACBA, CosmoCaixa in Sonar Festival (Spain), Glade Festival, Resonance FM, ICA London (UK), Batofar (Paris), m12 (Berlin), Offsite, Super Deluxe, futarri, SOUP, gift_lab, Vacant, CAY, EMAF Tokyo, Apple Store (Japan).
