Yoshimio and Ikue Mori met in the 80’s in Osaka, and have been involved together with different projects throughout the decades. Twindrum is project that started in Brooklyn in 2013, and performed in Japan in 2014.
YOSHIMIO is an original member of the world’s most radical experimental music group BOREDOMS from Japan.
Yoshimi is known as a drummer but is a multi instrumentalist who also plays guitar, a keyboard, trumpet, and her own voice. She is also the leader of the experimental band OOIOO, a member of Free Kitten with Kim Gordon (ex. Sonic Youth), and Saicobaba – a improvisational band which uses electronics mixed with traditional Indian musical instruments.
YOSHIMI has contributed to innumerable session works and participated in many musical adventures outside of her usual projects. She created an original score for the abstract documentary film “YUNNAN COLORFREE” and has written music for TV commercials under the name YOSHIMIO. YOSHIMI is truly a multi-disciplinary artist. Besides music, YOSHIMI is the head designer / creative director for the fashion line Emeraldthirteen.
With her creative work in music at the base, she projects authenticity in her entire vision. Whether she is projecting her voice, channeling the characteristic vibrations of an instrument, or designing clothing YOSHIMI propels primeval expression with vivid color, cohabiting space between many dimensions without force, to create a devotedly multidimensional sensitivity to forge non-discriminate expression, harnessing the inherent force propelling from herself and the mediums she uses to create.
