Hyunhye (Angela) Seo is an artist exploring experimental composition and expression of sound and its manifestations within space and body. She is a member of the musical group Xiu Xiu
, in which she extends the band’s visual themes to global diaspora, post-colonial spirituality and ritualism, and complex exotification/fetishization via videos that have been featured in film festivals around the world. Recently, her solo album, Strands
, explores abstract soundscapes built with processed percussion, improvisational piano, and dark ambient material. Her sound installations in relation to this work create an immersive territory that compels the listener to question how they carry the immediate and lingering impact of sound.
