Midori Hirano is a Japanese musician, composer, sound artist and producer, born in Kyoto and now based in Berlin, whose work stems across a diverse range of genres and cultures. At the age of five Midori started learning the piano and this triggered what was to later see her study classical piano at university. Therefore her productions are based around the use of traditional instrumentation such as the piano or strings, but yet her works are so diverse, an eclectic mixture of modern digital sounds with subtle electronic processing or field recordings. For her itʼs not about creating music in its traditional forms or cliché, but about playing, mixing and finding new ways of presenting music.
Currently based: Berlin, Germany
