Sachiko M and Ami Yoshida are two of the most prominent members of the burgeoning Onkyo movement. Onkyo, a Japanese word meaning ‘reverberation of sound’, places much more emphasis on sound texture than on musical structure, distilling elements of techno, noise, and electronic music into a unique hybrid. Sachiko M has developed a unique style utilizing a memory-free sampler, coaxing pure, piercing sine waves with the device’s built-in test tones and noise. Ami Yoshida, using only voice, creates abstract vocalizations that both jar and rival the extremity of sound Sachiko throws out. They both minimize their music to a distilled maximum.
