In 2017 she was among the finalists for the art stipend of Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany for New Music. Her sound work is exploring sounds found in cities, often produced by various infrastructures she encounters, synthesising natural phenomena, beat making, her voice and the practice of prepared piano, oscillating between sonic poetry and infrastructure blues. She performs her music in art settings and produces as part of her choreographic practice.
During her time in Stockholm, she will be working at EMS periodically.
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.

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.
At EMS he wants to hone his skills, work with artists and have interesting conversations. He is currently particularly interested in live sound design, how sound manifests in different mediums, multichannel compositions and in ways to bend field recordings and samples to the atoms.
