Hyewon Suk is a composer and sound artist based in Berlin and Seoul. Hyewon has focused on the aural experience that both humans and nonhumans encounter as a way of existence in time and space. Her works explore materiality, ephemerality, and the embodiment of sound with a diverse range of works including installation, visual works, fixed audio works and audiovisual performance. Hyewon also works with sound artist Anna Phaenarete Lioka as a collective “Odd Sonorous”. Hyewon has also actively collaborated with several sound artists, filmmakers, and choreographers providing their work with her original 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. She is currently pursuing her masters at the University of Arts Berlin.
