Yuri Suzuki is a sound artist, designer and electronic musician who produces work that explores the realms of sound through exquisitely designed pieces.
Suzuki was born in Tokyo in 1980. Between 1999 and 2005, he worked for Japanese art unit Maywa Denki, where he developed a strong interest in music and technology. In 2005, he moved to London to study at the Royal College of Art. After his graduation in 2008, he opened his own practice in London.
Suzuki’s work raises questions of the relation between sound and people and how music and sound affect
people’s mind. Suzuki’s sound art pieces and installations have been shown in exhibitions and are in collections around the world such as Tate Britain London, Mudam Luxemborg and Nam June Paik Art Center Seoul. In 2014, Suzuki’s work “Looks Like Music” and “Ototo” were acquired into the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
