Often seen in collaboration with live insects and video, tonight she performs with a guest tabla player, Samir Chatterjee. Masaoka has worked with the Bang on a Can Allstars, Ornette Coleman, George Lewis, ROVA, Pharoah Sanders, Steve Coleman and many others. The Laser Koto, with its design and sensors made especially for her, runs on the MAX/MSP program.
