Hyunji Jung (b.1991) is a South Korean sound artist currently based in Rotterdam. After finishing Bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Language in Korea, she came to the Netherlands to study fine art at the Willem de Kooning Academy. During the study, her interests in narrative and linguistics were translated into sound, which became the cartographic language in her practice.

She explores compositional process and form of composition embracing the influence of technology in music and art. Her works often result in audiovisual, interactive sound installation which create an immersive experience featuring mythical, ritualistic elements. Her sonic research is based on psychoacoustic effects of minimal music idea implementing analogue and digital synthesis, field recording, instrumentation, in the form of electroacoustic music.

Apart from her art practice, she works as a sound designer, recordist for digital media and video production. As a member of MINT Podium (https://mintpodium.org/), a Rotterdam-based art collective, she is actively engaged in Rotterdam art scene organising various art events.
