Suk-Jun Kim is a composer, sound artist, and senior lecturer in Electroacoustic Music and Sound Art at the University of Aberdeen, UK. Kim’s music mainly focuses on the sense of places that are fantastic, imaginary, magical, and realistic, in which listeners can visit, stop by, and dwell. Having won several international composition awards and attracted commissions, Kim’s music has been performed worldwide and can be heard on ICMC, IMEB, and SEAMUS labels, and M&R. His research focuses on acousmatic reasoning, imaginal listening, phenomenological approaches to the aesthetics of electroacoustic music, space and place, platial memory and sound, and magical realism in electroacoustic music among others. Kim’s interest in platial memory and sound has also led him to expand his medium to installations, recently focusing mainly on people’s humming via his Humming Project. Kim studied theology at Yonsei university, South Korea and Recording Engineering at OIART (Ontario Institute of Audio and Recording Technology). He earned a master’s degree in Music Technology in Northwestern University and a Ph.D. in composition at the University of Florida. In 2009, Kim was invited to Berlin by DAAD for its Artists-in-Berlin programme. He is the author of Humming (A Study of Sound) by Bloomsbury and Hasla by Kehrer Verlag Heidelberg. Kim recently published his solo CD Humming by Vox Regis. Academic.
