Description
Bora Yoon is an experimental multi-instrumentalist, composer, and performer, featured in WIRE magazine and on the front page of the Wall Street Journal for creating architectural soundscapes from everyday objects, chamber instruments, digital devices, and voice. She has toured her innovative sound work internationally with solo performances at Lincoln Center, Bang on a Can Marathon, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the Nam June Paik Museum in Seoul, with releases on Swirl Records, SubRosa, and the Journal of Popular Noise. She has created unique concepts for live sound design, including one in a 55,000-square-foot abandoned WPA pool in Brooklyn for seven sopranos on bicycles. She has been commissioned by the Young People's Chorus of NYC and the SAYAKA Ladies' Consort of Tokyo to create surround-sound choral performance works: Semaphore Conductus (2008) and CPS/RPM (2009). Collaborators include Reykjavic sound artist Ben Frost, poet Sekou Sundiata, DJ Spooky, Kaki King, and the League of Electronic Musicians & Urban Robots.
