Ikue Mori moved from her native city of Tokyo to New York in 1977. She started playing drums and soon formed the seminal NO WAVE band DNA, with fellow noise pioneers Arto Lindsay and Tim Wright. In the mid 80's Ikue started to employ drum machines in the context of improvised music. Through the 1990s she has collaborated with improvisors globally, while continuing to record her own music. In 2000 Ikue started using the laptop to expand on her signature sound. Current projects include MEPHISTA with Sylvie Courvoisier and Susie Ibarra, PHANTOM ORCHARD with Zeena Parkins, Koichi Makigami, and various ensembles of John Zorn.
