At the forefront of violinists who are extending the technical and expressive capabilities of the instrument, Kimura has opened up new sonic worlds for the violin. Notably, she has mastered Subharmonics, the production of pitches that sound up to an octave below the violin’s lowest string without retuning. She is also a pioneer in the field of interactive computer music and has earned international acclaim as a soloist and recitalist in both standard and contemporary repertoire.

The recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship in 2002, an Alpert Award in the Arts in 1999, and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, Lewis’ work as composer, improvisor, performer, and interpreter explores electronic and computer music, computer-based multimedia installations, text-sound works, and notated and improvisative forms.
