Yoshi Wada is a Japanese sound installation artist and musician living in the United States. Born in Japan, Wada joined the Fluxus movement in 1968 after meeting George Maciunas. He also studied with the North Indian vocalist Pandit Pran Nath. Wada's works often incorporate the use of drone and are usually performed at very high volume, allowing for the overtones within the sound to be heard very clearly. At Greene Naftali he will present Yoshi's Sound Store: "Inner Ear is in Your Ear."
