[-> Information auf Deutsch]

Korean composer Yong Joon Yang, currently a guest artist at ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics, concentrates his production on interactive computer music. In the context of his updates, Yang would like to offer insight into his current work. He will present two pieces created during his residency at ZKM. In these pieces, Yang mixes the traditional roots of Korean folklore with state-of-the-art technology: a computer recognizes via camera the movements of a live performance and-following the choreography-continually creates new music based on samples of traditional Korean instruments. In this upDate, the artist will first explain the theoretical background of his work as well as his working method in a short talk. He will then offer a live performance of his work, with the support of dancer Hyun-Ju Lee.
