Bora Yoon

Bora Yoon is a Korean-American, electroacoustic composer, vocalist and sound artist who conjures audiovisual soundscapes using digital devices, voice, found objects and instruments from a variety of cultures and historical centuries. Classically trained and steeped in a first love of choral music, Yoon is fascinated by the intersection of space and sound, maps, human Venn diagrams, handsome sounding kitchenware, sonorities and the strings that hold everything together. Featured on the front-page of the Wall Street Journal and in the NEA podcast for her form-breaking works, Yoon’s music has been presented at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Singapore Arts Festival, and performing arts centers worldwide. Yoon has been awarded a NY Foundation for the Arts fellowship, a Sorel Organization for Women Composers grant, a New Music USA project grant, and most recently an IDEA grant from Opera America.
