Mamiko Motto is the founder and driving force of GASS.
The composer, sound artist and music director first started making international waves as a radio host of her own long running Hepcat Radio and later, in her involvement in the formation of NTS - now the world’s premier internet radio station, prized for its critically acclaimed shows.
She has gained recognition as a tastemaker and music director working across film, fashion and high-end events and has a growing reputation for her curatorial work with visual and digital arts. She has been recognised for having “an ear for new music that bends the rules” - [The Fader] and for “constantly uncovering tucked-away records and underrated artists” -[Dazed]. Mamiko has released music on Warp Records and Big Dada as Wednesday Nite, and put the crucial Amada compilation together for All City Records.
In GASS the ideas and passions which have always informed her approach to music and sound now drive her work with art and technology, creating new opportunities for creative collaboration - with an always forward leaning vision.
