Born in Mie, Japan in 1977, Misa Shimomura lives and works in Berlin since 2010.
Misa has positioned herself for more than ten years in the area where classical music and new music meet.
Pianist of the Kyoto underground-band THIS=MISAxSAIKOU (1999-2006) which united violinist and improviser Saikou Miyajima in the Mie-countryside of Japan, she moved to Kyoto in 2003 and came into contact with many kinds of artists with whom she is still associated, including film-makers, contemporary dancers, painters, sound artists, poets, DJs, Kyogen performers(Japanese traditional theater) and musicians.
She has also played composed music by John Cage.
Each new interaction opened a new door to fresh possibilities in her sound education.
During the past few years her works are focused on solo improvisation, and voice of singing.
From 2008 to 2010 she was a member of the art project company "jour par jour cie" in "Laboratoire Village Nomade" Switzerland.
In 2009 the project moved to Awaji-shima, Japan, under the name “nomadomura llp”.
In 2010 her new CD “seven colors” was released in Japan.
