A musician, composer and product designer, Yuri embraces the physicality of music and vinyl records in an increasingly digital age; projects such as The physical value of Sound aim to “provoke people’s interest in physical music media once again”, and question the consequences of digitisation and reducing music to “data”. As part of Field Trip, Yuri will run a one-day workshop exploring the intersection between product design, sound art and graphics.
He also manages to find time to work as a designer for Teenage Engineering, and is currently working on a book in collaboration with Åbäke.
