From wild electronica to soothing ambient. from ethnic fusion to epic rock, cinematic and beyond.
Ryo Utasato is a Japanese composer and singer/songwriter with a rich body
of work that runs the gamut from electronica to ambient to world to rock and
Being raised by parents who were both musicians themselves, Ryo has had
no shortage of inspiration and has been creating music from a very young
age. Her range of talent and unique experimental style is immediately striking
and listening to one of her pieces will undoubtedly transport you to another
place. Her soundtracks have appeared in a variety of film and TV, and she's
worked in such genres as sci-fi, drama, horror and action. Her work was also
chosen for the theme of World Heritage series.
Ryo's incredible musical sense combined with her genuine interest in world
culture has opened her mind and pushed her to experiment with different types of
sounds and instruments. Her music often features a mixture of seemingly
contrasting sounds which collide at different points and produce unexpectedly
moving results. On top of some of the more conventional instruments which Ryo
has used in her music, she has also experimented with a number of others from
different parts of the world such as the duduk (Armenia), the erhu (China) and
the shamisen (Japan). The expanse and tremendous scale of her music is capable
of taking us from one part of the globe to another, just by closing our eyes.
