Mitchell Akiyama

Montreal-based musician and media artist Mitchell Akiyama is perhaps best known for his electronic deconstructions of traditional instrumental music. Since his debut album on Alien8 Recordings, Hope that lines don’t cross, he has emerged as one of Canada’s premier electronic composers and has gone on to record for internationally renowned labels such as German minimalist label Raster Noton and Belgian sound art innovator Sub Rosa. In 2001 Akiyama founded intr_version records to address the under-representation of Canadian electronic music composers. He is also a visual artist working in photography and video, and he completed his MFA in the Open Media program at Concordia University in 2006 where he was the holder of the Dora Morrow Fellowship for excellence in visual arts.
