Praised by Alvin Lucier as "one of the most talented and original young composers in the world today", KAZUE MIZUSHIMA is gaining stature as one of Japan's most intriguing installation artists and composers of her generation. After graduate studies in composition from the University of California in 1991, she became active as an independent composer and artist, creating small- and large-scale performance works for dance, theatre and "installation music" with her own ensemble, Studio Eve. She has toured to Canada, Portugal, Korea and Holland and has been presented in Japan at such venues as the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Theater, Theater X, P3 Gallery, Tsurugi International Art Festival and Xebec. Mizushima also gained wide popularity in Canada with packed performances in Vancouver, Toronto and the Newfoundland-Sound Symposium in 1994.
