Ji Youn Kang
Primary Affiliation: Institute of Sonology - The Hague, Netherlands
Ji Youn Kang is a composer/sound artist based in The Hague.
Most of her music pieces have been composed based on the rites of Korean Shamanism, and many of them were written for Wave Field Synthesis System (192 loudspeakers) playback, exploring the relationship between musical and physical spaces in relation to the traditional shamanistic performances. At the same time she has been composing live electronic pieces for both traditional, non-traditional, newly built instruments, exploring mostly the primitive, empowering rhythmical elements and the noisy sound sources that the Korean ritual music involves.
Currently she is working as a freelance composer and one of the staff members in Institute of Sonology.
