Yojimbo Billions (born Zach Vogt) is an electronic musician from Phoenix, Arizona. As a child, he studied piano, alto saxophone and electric bass; he would study music theory in college and work as a jazz musician before moving on to other pursuits. In 2009, after spending most of the decade trying to get short stories into McSweeney’s, Vogt claims he was visited by a robot named Sabi Kun. “He told me I had been wasting my life with words,” Vogt recalls, “and that the only language with which I could truly communicate was musical, the highest language of our species.” Using the computer as a compositional tool was an easy decision. “With a computer, your sound palette is unlimited. Every sound ever recorded is at your command.” The name was stolen from Vogt’s cat, who himself stole it from Akira Kurosawa and Toshiro Mifune.

His new record Our Bodies Are Machines is out now via Waaga.
