Hyewon Suk is a composer and sound artist based in Berlin and Seoul. Hyewon has focused on the aural experience as a way of encountering the physical-ecological-political system in the current time and space. In her work, the act of listening has been highlighted for speculating the relationship between human/non-human, material/non-material, and subject/object. Her works encompass a range of diverse media including installation, film, fixed audio works, and audiovisual performance.  Hyewon also works with Anna Phaenarete Lioka, as the collective Odd Sonorous*. Aside from this, she has actively collaborated with diverse artists, filmmakers, and choreographers providing compositions. Hyewon was classically trained in the major of composition at Ewha Womans University and completed a masters degree at Bath Spa University majoring in Sound Arts, and at the University of Arts Berlin majoring in Sound Studies and Sonic Arts.

석혜원은 물리, 생태, 정치적 시스템으로서의 질서의 단면들을 청각 경험으로 환원한다. 작품 안에서 개인의 듣기 경험은 인간과 비인간, 물질과 비물질, 주체와 대상간의 경계를 허무는 요소로 활용되며, 기존의 질서체계에 균열을 만들수 있는지 실험한다. 현재 서울과 베를린을 기반으로 활동중이다.
