Joo Won Park (www.joowonpark.net) 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 music with field recordings, sine waves, and any other sources that he can record or synthesize. Park draws inspiration from Florida swamps, Philadelphia skyscrapers, his two sons, and other soundscapes surrounding him. He has studied at Berklee College of Music and University of Florida, and has taught at Temple University, Rutgers University at Camden, and Community College of Philadelphia. Park’s music and writings are available on ICMC DVD, Spectrum Press, MIT Press, and PARMA Recording. His recent project at www.100strangesounds.com consists of 100 videos of original live electronic music.
