A second generation Korean American born in 1980, Bora Yoon is an experimental multi-instrumentalist, composer and performer who creates a type of performance art that is part foley, part sound design, and part gesture—where sound connects to the subliminal and its performance environment through the timbres of the human voice combined with viola, water, Tibetan singing bowls, radios, cell phones, metronomes, music boxes, glockenspiel, guitar, found sounds, custom-built instruments, electronics, and antiquated audio technology. A graduate of Ithaca College’s Conservatory of Music and creative writing program, she is classically trained in the school of studied thought and improvisational sciences, with a first love of choral music. Using a sound designer’s approach to performance composition that is steered by a penchant for a song, she creates music that plays with sensory associations and spatial idiosyncrasies, addressing the dimensionality of space and sound. Among her many collaborations, she is currently scoring and performing the live music for Haruki Murakimi’s Wind Up Bird Chronicle presented by the Baryshnikov Art Center and Asia Society, which premieres at the 2011 Edinburgh International Arts Festival. Her works have been performed at TED conferences, and among her other honors are awards from the New York Foundation for the Arts, Asian American Arts Alliance, Billboard, BMI, and the Arion Foundation.
