Sound artist Okagawa, who started making field recordings in 2014, creates multilayered collage works from elements such as recorded environmental sounds, analog noise and electronic sound. His works include The Notional Terrain (Glistening Examples, 2017) and something veiled (Unfathomless, 2019). Okagawa collaborates with a variety of musicians and labels in Japan and other countries, and has released a number of recordings. He started performing improvisation in 2017. Using electronics in his creation process, he explores the structural possibilities of sound through the combination of simple tones. His solo recording in the quiet room was released on the Hitorri label in 2019.
