Post your comments about our yoko Honda Interview and let us know what you thought of her.
“It’s my life. I am so grateful that I met music when I was a small kid, and it feels as if I was born for it.” – yoko Honda
The world of music for yoko Honda was destined to be a world journey. A desire on her part to study both performing arts and sound technology/engineering would take her from Japan to Liverpool, England at the age of 19. In 2007 she would sojourn to the US to attend the University of North Carolina School of the Arts to expand her composing and arranging abilities.
Her musical creations display the wide range of styles she has been exposed to, as she says herself: “I enjoy writing in so many different styles that I have no idea which genre my music belongs to.” But one thing her songs all share is the depth of training and passion she brings to her life’s work.
So if you’re in the mood for some elegant classical music, some atmospheric sci-fi theme sounds or something that you could picture being in an animation score, come take a listen to the works of this Japanese international traveler who does admit to one regret: “…my favorite flower, Sakura (cherry blossom) in the spring. I actually haven’t seen them in full bloom in Japan since I left, and still miss it very much.”
On September 27, 2009 yoko Honda was kind enough to give an interview to J-Pop World. yoko Honda Interview.
