Michiko Saiki is a Japanese-born pianist and multimedia artist. As she was raised amongst a devoted Shinto-Buddhist family, Michiko’s early perspective of life was largely influenced by traditional Japanese cultural values. Her upbringing within Tokyo’s fast paced culture, her family, and her 10 years of life in the US have largely influenced her artistic interests.

Her body of works consists of performance art and video art. Using experimental video and photography techniques, she explores hidden qualities of her body and voice. Her first video piece a…i…u…e…o… has been screened in numerous international film festivals and won First Place in the Without Word Film Festival in Metz, France in 2014. Her goal as an artist is to create works that go beyond the limitations of traditional mediums and the conventional social norms she is immersed in.

As a specialist of contemporary music, Michiko also regularly concertizes and promotes the work of living composers. She has earned Doctor of Musical Arts in Contemporary Music as a pianist from Bowling Green State University, Ohio USA.
