Yuri Suzuki is a sound artist, designer and electronic music composer whose work explores the world of sound through exquisitely designed pieces. The Japanese artist who currently lives and works in London, will present from Thursday, April 30 until June 28, The sound of the waves, a new work produced for the LABoratorio de Sonido del Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial. Both the selection of the artist as well as the work produced is a proposed jointly by LABoral’s Sound LAB and L.E.V 2015.

What the artist defines as "an installation for relaxation", The sound of waves recreates the patterns of ocean waves, taking data from certain beaches in the world and playing them acoustically through traditional African instruments such as rainstick or African rainstick.

The unpredictable nature of wave patterns is well-known for its relaxing effects on human beings. Yuri Suzuki aims to create at the LABoratorio de Sonido a "white noise" - random sound which spectral density of power is constant, i.e., it is represented flat on a graph – to wake up with this work, the feeling of comfort and serenity on the visitor. The LABoral installation places the acoustic in the foreground in the viewer's mind, eliminating any unnecessary excess. This allows sound to travel through the brain, changing brain waves of the spectator and the chemical messages that might affect their mood.

Suzuki had yet presented in LABoral his work Sound Chaser at Nowhere / Now / Here exhibition held in 2008. Curated by Rosario Hurtado and Roberto Feo (El Último Grito), this show explored new lines of researching in the contemporary design. In this piece, the Japanese artist showed a train-style record player that resurrecting long forgotten old records. Users can connect chipped pieces of records and then make, in both senses, a new track

Yuri Suzuki (Tokyo, 1980) works between 1999 and 2005 for the Japanese artistic group Maywa Denki, where he developed a strong interest in music and technology. In 2005 he moved to London to study at the Royal College of Art. During this period he produced some projects for Yamaha and Moritz Waldemeyer and after his graduation in 2008, he opened his own studio in London.

Suzuki's work turns around the relationship between sound and how music and sound affect the human mind. Suzuki has exhibited his pieces and artistic sound installations worldwide.

In 2013 he was appointed tutor at the Design of Product Department at the Royal College of Art in London and also hold the post of Associate Partner for Disney, New Radiophonic Workshop and the Teenage Engineering. Also in 2013 created the Yuri Suzuki Creative Lab that provides R & D consulting services to various companies such as Widen and Kennedy, Kkoutlet and AIAIAI.

In 2014 the MOMA of New York acquired his musical instrument (DIY - Do It Yourself) OTOTO, made from a synthesizer and integrated and an integrated sampler and Colour Chasers for his permanent collection.
