Artists Otomo Yoshihide

Otomo Yoshihide has explored the nature of sound throughout his career. He formed the highly influential group Ground Zero in 1990. In recent years he has developed a passion for low-frequency minimalist electronic music and the results of this work can be heard on the Filament and ISO projects. He is also a member of a quintet that plays jazz standards by composers such as Ornette Coleman, Gerry Mulligan, and Eric Dolphy as well as Otomo’s own compositions. He has also composed a number of film soundtracks and written essays and articles for Japanese music publications.
