YOUNG HWA KANG
July 2012

Gwanak, Seoul, Korea – “I was born in Seoul, Korea. I have received M.A and B.A at Seoul National University, and studied Eastern philosophy at Sungkyunkwan University in Korea. I have been teaching Korean Classical Music Composition Technique at several colleges. From 2003 to 2004, I participated in Creation Contents Project using Korean traditional music which had been supported by Korea Culture & Content Agency and Arts Council Korea 2010 on Interdisciplinary art.
     I have worked on a project dealing with climate change issue with many artists from diversified fields at 23rd Chuncheon International Mime Festival, one of the world’s most renowned mime festivals, this year. Although the issue was thought of a heavy subject, I could achieve a very insightful realization through the project. Also, I have participated in various social activities for teenagers from neglected classes run by SIDANCE(Seoul International Dance Festival).”
