Midori Komachi: Women Make Music

Midori Komachi is a violinist, writer and composer who has developed a diverse career in bridging cultures through music. Komachi’s works explore music in relation to space, architecture and cultural heritage of places. She has written music for site-specific projects, including Musicity x Sculpture in the City, Maggie’s Centres LIFE Exhibition (2017-19), and ‘New Spa Experience’ for UK cosmetics brand LUSH. In 2019, she was selected a Musician in Residence Brazil with British Council and PRS Foundation.

Komachi made her debut as a soloist at the age of 12 with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, and since has performed extensively throughout Europe and Japan, appearing in venues such as Tonhalle Zurich, Tokyo Opera City Hall, Philharmony Warsaw, and Wigmore Hall. She has been featured on TV and Radio, including BBC Radio 3, NHK TV and TV Tokyo. She is also a presenter on her programme Midori Selects on British Airways in-flight entertainment.

‘Chashitsu – Auditory Tea Room’ is an album exploring the aesthetics of a traditional Japanese Tea Room (Chashitsu), bringing together the unique sense of listening and appreciation of beauty in simplicity. Inspired by the relationship of sound, space and the essential elements in a Chashitsu, Midori Komachi will create an immersive ‘sonic architecture’, writing for violin and electronics with field recordings and static binaural mixing. This album will be released in Spring 2021 via Musicity’s record label, MSCTY. A virtual tea room for the modern day, inviting the audience into a deeper exploration of this tradition.
