Hi, my name is Yoon


Hi, my name is Yoon. I am a 3rd year architect working on a minor in music and business. I was a classical flutist by training until high school, and I picked up jazz and improvisation here at Cornell. Other than flute, I’ve fiddled around a bit with piano (just enough to play simple pieces), piccolo, recorder, ocarina, and a whole slew of other “flutey” instruments. I have performed solo, in tiny chamber groups, huge orchestras, wind ensembles, jazz bands, and jazz combos throughout high school, and in improvisation ensemble at Cornell.

I don’t have much to show for previous recording or composition experiences, but here is a short piece I made using a Zoom recorder and Audacity three years ago.

I am interested in this class because I am looking for ways to “extend” my instrument digitally. I love playing the flute, but often feel that flute alone feels a little bland. I am hoping that digital manipulations and extensions can add a bit of umph in my music.  I am interested in digital composition, but I would also like to be able to utilize what I learn in this class for live performances.

I love playing with other people, so feel free to contact me if you want to collaborate! I am also down for jams. I am actually still on the waitlist for this class but I hope I get to join everyone before add-drop ends. Wish me luck!

    Hi Yoon,

    I see you’re interested in extending your instrument… have you ever considered joining the Improvisation Ensemble? Extended techniques are encouraged quite a bit in that class, and I get lots of great ideas from seeing what other people do with their instruments. This semester we’re building synthesizers and microphones as well so you might be able to adapt that to what you want to do with your instrument.


  2. Hi Jenae! Yes! I was in the ensemble freshman year and I will be joining it again this semester. Sounds like you’re in it too? Looking forward to play with you 🙂
