Hoonmin Park is a composer and drummer, and is studying electro-acoustic music composition at Korea National University of Arts. He is working on creating an ideal structure as a sound, exploring various works and techniques between macro and micro, changing present and past. The structure has some images, and sometimes the external structure is emphasized or the internal images are highlighted depending on the work. He wants to create works that logical methods of creation underlie on it’s basis but can be sensuous and intuitive.

Hyewon Choi has been a percussionist in the most active Korean classical music groups such as ‘Kinetic Korean classical music group YIEN’, ‘Korean musical group Taru’, ‘Jeong Ga Ak Hoe’, and ‘Kwon Song Hee Pansori epic chant Lab’ for the past 10 years.

Although she started as a traditional musician and has been active in Korean classical music groups, she has continuously tried to find a meeting point between traditional-, modern-, electronic- and world music.

More than just being a performer playing Korean traditional and Western percussion instruments and various special instruments, she is driven to learn about the techniques and methodology of electronic music and sound programming. This wide interest also made her a DJ and sound designer.

Lately, she has been successfuly expanding her musical career as a music director in various dance and theater pieces, making use of her sound range from traditional to electronic.

She has now become a multi-producer working with sound designing, producing, composing, and arranging. 

Hyewon Choi's residency is kindly made possible by 
the Arts Council Korea, ARKO.

We welcome Francesco Torelli for a nine month internship @ EMS!

Francesco is a sound lover who graduated in electronic music at Conservatorio G.F. Ghedini Cuneo. His work is based on electroacoustic compositions, live performances and sound design for moving images (documentaries and movies).

In his music, he mostly uses digital and analog elaboration of recorded sounds, with the aim to give sound a meaning, paying attention to perception aspects. He is attracted by musique concrète and from the act of recording sounds, played or from the environment.

Francesco is still working to know his different faces of musical identity better. The work is never ending and lot of fun.

SØS Gunver Ryberg is a Danish artist, composer and acoustic fanatic who thrives in the uncompromising extremities of electronic music. A stuntwoman in a past life, she now wields an arsenal of insistent industrial rhythms, raw techno and expressive sound art that challenges your state of consciousness.

Ryberg’s work embodies her rich production history. Her 2016 debut AFTRYK, released on Contort Records, for which she processed her own field recordings made inside a mountain on Svalbard, is a meticulous exploration of textures and timbres that has an undeniable live quality. With a broad background in performance and production, her works encompasses multichannel installations, live concerts, performance art, video games, and much more. For video games, Ryberg has created music and sound design for two acclaimed indie productions: the multiple award-winning ‘INSIDE’, which she worked on with Martin Stig Andersen; and, as part of SGR^CAV, a collaboration with Cristian Vogel, for twin-stick shooter game ‘THOTH’. 

An AIR-programme grant from Nordic Culture Point has made it possible for SØS Gunver Ryberg to work at EMS.

Olli Aarni (born 1988) is an experimental musician working in Vantaa, Finland. His music reflects the weather conditions and creates artificial views of the nature.

Aarni's sounds are based on dense timbres and static harmony, and the soundscapes yield rhythmic repetition and create worlds to get lost in: like reality condensed into magic or a hidden valley between new age and noise. 

Aarni's discography spans over 20 tapes, vinyls and CDs released on four continents, and he has performed in Japan, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Estonia, Russia and Finland.
