Next up on the FMB Mixtape Series, we’re happy to have Mika Oki in the mix, a French-Japanese visual and sound artist, currently living and working in Brussels. First, we caught up with her to find out about the mix & what she’s been up to recently…
I’ve been chilling in my garden with my cat! Watching the supermoooon!
As a late night bird, I’ve recorded this mix during the night in my studio in Brussels. My studio is also a radio station once a week and turns into a community studio for the french & belgian LYL radio. I’m taking care of the Belgian branch. The studio is part of an artist runspace where I live together with nineteen other artists. It’s called Brasserie Atlas.
Usually I craft my mixes like a trip on acid by balancing many opposites. From organic sounds to melted voices, electroacoustic sounds and rugged drums, busy acid workouts and sparse, bass heavy rhythm tracks. This one is more progressive and made of cathartic passages of musical mindfulness with brutal drum assaults that tugs you in many different directions at once to trigger both physically and emotionally.
Lately I’ve been Djing and playing an AVLive project with SKY H1.
Will be touring during the summer in festivals like Dour and Pukkelpop in Belgium, Dekmantel in Holland, Nextones & Opera in Italy & others…
I’m also looking forward to being in September for the Meakusma Festival where I will be showing my Installation Parhelion and be in Uganda for the Nyege Nyege Festival where I will show a very new work for the occasion. Can’t wait!
