BIOGRAPHY

Seungsoon Park (a.k.a. RADIOPHONICS)
박승순 朴昇淳

born in 1985, based in Seoul, KR

Seungsoon Park is an electronic music composer (a.k.a. Radiophonics) creating a variety of new media projects as a cross media artist. He is one of the co-founders of the collective ‘IDEAN’ and now a member of ZER01NE LAB. He explores how a human being interacts with nature or with the universe through music. As the electronic music composer of ‘Radiophonics’, he creates music pieces based on concepts such as the physics of the universe, natural phenomena, and contemporary philosophy. As a cross media artist, he has developed several interfaces and installations using water, light, sound, and artificial intelligence to create or experience music intended not only for musicians but also for a general audience.

Currently, he is working on the NEUROSCAPE series, for which he uses a deep learning algorithm to analyze landscapes and to develop experimental soundscape that is fitting to those particular images. In the process, Park thinks deeply about how technology can be applied to music and presents new methods of artistic creation. Instead of focusing on the original sound provided by the artist, he draws his attention to sounds that are played differently depending on the audience. In other words, he follows the transformation of sound caused by the influences of specific events and situations in any given space. According to Seungsoon Park, “How one perceives and experiences objects should be a personal experience for each individual.” The sound and experiences that result from what was perceived and interpreted by an audience member makes the artist disappear, and the audience become active conductors instead of passive listeners. 

He received his MSc at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), under the Graduate School of Culture and Technology. He has participated in the International Computer Music Conference (ICMC), Ars Electronica Future Innovator Summit, and the annual SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas.
