Join Korean-American composer, vocalist, and mixed-media innovator Bora Yoon as she conjures audiovisual soundscapes. Classically trained and steeped in a first love of choral music, Yoon creates immersive storytelling composed of digital devices, voice, and instruments from a variety of cultures and centuries.
Described by the New York Times as “mesmerizing” and by KoreAm Journal as “totally unique... unexpected,” Yoon’s work resonates with a diverse range of genres and communities. Her ever-evolving experiments with technology and art has resulted in the creation of spacial sound environments and experiences with music for dance, theatre, opera, multimedia happenings and art galleries.
