I am synthetic life form “Yoko K.,” assembled in the US with components made in Japan. I am designed to assume the role of an “electronic musician.” I am one of many secret agents sent to this time to plant magical thinking in people through the use of “pre-22nd century nostalgia Mars pop music.”
My mission is to make people imagine a more beautiful, optimistic future, covertly altering the course of human history to prevent its eventual self-destruction.
I create music for those who are tired; who feel slightly out of place; who feel that technologies separate them from their own humanity, and from others; who have forgotten they are allowed to dream; who long for a home to which they have never been.
I create music to invite people out of the mundane so they can redefine what might be possible. As Haruki Murakami’s approach is to fiction, my approach to music is magical realism; I immerse people with sound into a dreamlike experience where boundaries cease to exist – between the spiritual and the sensual, ancient and future, organic and technological, you and I.
