Aki Ito is a Japanese composer, born in Kyoto. Her thinking about time is influenced by orbital resonance. By uniting it with slowness, which is her fundamental aesthetic, her music develops in different forms. In accordance with her interest in astronomical phenomena, she developed the Astérismes project in collaboration with Jean-Philippe Lambert to explore flexible sound space and a type of participatory concert combining social and compositional aspects. She also leads the Parrakas Madonna project (The Bearded Madonna) for voice, cello, electronics and puppets, inspired by the Bunraku form. She is co-founder of Libratio.

After her studies at the CNSMDP, she carried out her creative projects and research on perception during residencies supported by the Casa de Velázquez, the Institut français, and the Kone Foundation. Her works have been premiered and performed by the musicians of the Ensemble Intercontemporain, defunensemble, Smash ensemble, Tuuli Lindeberg, Élodie Soulard. She has also worked on interdisciplinary projects with Richard Siegal, Frédéric Bevilacqua, and Eira Stenberg.
