Dosage is the brainchild of Japanese composer, singer, musician, poet and performer Sayoko. Before starting Dosage, Sayoko studied classical piano, contemporary dance and design, crossed paths with Sonic Youth and founded the Pink Mushroom band. Along with guitarist Yutaka Kawana and drummer Buz, she started Dosage in New York around 1998 and released Empties for John Zorn’s Tzadik label in 2000 - a unique mix combining club music with heavy rock riffs, dub studio techniques, noise and sexy vocals (courtesy of Sakoyo), it’s the first installment in a series of daring and challenging albums. Follow up "Sur_Electronique" was produced in Paris where Sayoko had relocated and released in 2008; it featured live instruments and sampling and got nominated at the Qwartz International Music Awards. French cellist Gaspar Claus was involved in most of the tracks of Dosage's third offering "Fondant à la lune" (2011). "The Frequency of Emotion", recorded alongside electronic musician Anthony Bisset, was released in 2015. Now with her fifth album, licensed to Gaspar Claus' record label Les Disques du Festival Permanent (home of Sourdure, VACARME, Borja Flames...), Dosage keeps exploring the combination of acoustic instruments (cello, guitar, bass) and electronics and searching a very unique kind of groove.
