Kyoko Kitamura is a vocal improviser and composer residing in Brooklyn. She does weird things with her voice and is often a side-person for various amazing musicians. Her own songs have mildly disturbing content which may stem from her experience as a one-time war reporter. She was also a Garfield comics translator in Japan.

Most recently, she can be heard on Anthony Braxton‘s first-ever studio-recorded opera Trillium E  and his Syntactical Ghost Trance Choir as well as on her solo release Armadillo In Sunset Park.
