Joo Won Park wants to make everyday sound beautiful and strange so that everyday becomes beautiful and strange. He performs live with toys, kitchenware, vegetables, umbrellas, and other nonmusical objects by digitally processing their sounds. He also makes compositions using field recordings, sine waves, and any other sources that he can record or synthesize. Joo Won draws inspirations from listening to Florida swamps, Philadelphia skyscrapers, his 3-year-old son's play, and other soundscapes surrounding him.
Joo Won studied in Berklee College of Music (BM) and the University of Florida (MM and PhD). He is an assistant professor of music at the Community College of Philadelphia since 2008. Joo Won's music and writings are also available on ICMC DVD, Spectrum Press, MIT Press, and PARMA recording.
