Yoko Sen is an internationally touring ambient electronic musician, Citizen Artist Fellow at the Kennedy Center, and self-proclaimed “sound alchemist.” As the founder of Sen Sound, Yoko works to reimagine and re-engineer the sound experiences of hospitals.
In this episode, we follow Yoko from her classical piano training in Japan, to becoming an “Alien of Extraordinary Ability” visa holder in the United States, to producing two award-winning electronic music albums.
An engaging and thoughtful speaker, Yoko tells of her experiences and the insight she gained from a prolonged hospital visit. The question “what is the last sound I will hear when I die?” lingered after her discharge and became the basis for her life’s work to transform the soundscapes of hospitals.
Yoko may have started as someone who had to create to survive. But today, she has survived to create—and, in the process, improve countless lives.
