He is developing electronic instruments for the hearing-impaired using cochlear implants and researching the use of an auxiliary device for the visually-impaired, and has recently been working on creative music utilizing EEG data.
As a result of the study, he performed ‘Mind Wave’ for EEG, Haegeum, and Electronics and ‘The Cycle of Memories’ for Live Electronics. In 2019, ‘Granular Synthesis Using EEG Data’ and ‘EEG Prepared Piano’ were cited as examples of EEG's musical use at the 2019 ICMC.
