Yoneda Lemma aka Katrina Burch Yoneda Lemma (aka You Need a Lemon, sometimes Yoni Dilemma) is a quasi-causal brainchild for abstract exploration, experimental research, and a platform for productions, plotted by Canadian-born archaeologist, composer/producer and feminist thinker, Katrina Burch. Yoneda’s complex harmonic layers dig into sound, shifting sonic elements from one fiction to another. Katrina lives nomadically. When she’s not making music or writing, Katrina is in the field excavating the Jequetepeque desert of Peru, or a Neanderthal cave– – or she’s conducting ethnoarchaeological research in Southeast Asia.
She has exhibited her work internationally, in Berlin (V4ULT), Paris (Le Cube), London (Tate Britain), and elsewhere. Katrina publishes with The Passive Collective, MIT Press, and Merve. She is a collaborator in the international collectives Laboria Cuboniks, d-n-e, LATRINE, INFRA, and Asounder.
