“Probably my favorite moment of visual work, a traditional Gayageum player is accompanied by a fiery spring of light.
Born from my work with MAX/MSP/Jitter and event production, I’ve developed a distinct VJ practice, based on 3D architectures, Kinect depth maps, and audio reactivity.
Through my visuals I aim to extend audio performance, not through gratuitous colors and motion, but through distinct, carefully designed visual objects that breathe with the moment.
My most illustrious work has been electronic and acoustic ensembles, incorporating dance and telepresence. But I love work with single musicians too.”
