Improvised music by Soo Yeon Lyuh (haegum) and Carl Stone (electronics)

Soo Yeon Lyuh is a haegeum (Korean two-string bowed instrument) player, composer, and improviser based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Rigorously trained in court and folk repertories from a young age, Lyuh is known for her masterful performances of new compositions for the haegeum. Deeply invested in exploring new musical possibilities via improvisation, Lyuh seeks to continually expand contemporary haegeum possibilities through work with new media and technology. She is currently a Scholar-Artist in Residence at Mills College.

Carl Stone is one of the pioneers of live computer music, and has been hailed by the Village Voice as “the king of sampling.” and “one of the best composers living in (the USA) today.” He has used computers in live performance since 1986. Stone was born in Los Angeles and now divides his time between Los Angeles and Japan. He has composed electro-acoustic music almost exclusively since 1972. His works have been performed in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and the Near East. In addition to his schedule of performance, composition and touring, he is on the faculty of the Department of Media Engineering at Chukyo University in Japan.
