“Monographic Night of Electroacoustic Music” featuring the University of Tennessee Electroacoustic Ensemble performing original compositions by Joo Won Park.
Guest composer Joo Won Park is currently Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Music at the Oberlin Conservatory and draws inspiration for his compositions from Florida swamps, Philadelphia skyscrapers, his two sons, and other soundscapes surrounding him. He wants to make everyday sound beautiful and strange so that everyday becomes beautiful and strange. He performs live with toys, consumer electronics, kitchenware, vegetables, and other non-musical objects by digitally processing their sounds. He also makes pieces with field recordings, sine waves, and any other sources that he can record or synthesize. Park has studied at Berklee College of Music and the University of Florida.
