A little bit about me...

Hello, world! My name is Soomin, and I am a singer, a graphic designer, a dancer, an INFP, a Ravenclaw, a Virgo—on the cusp of Leo and Virgo—a daughter, a sister, a sister-in-law, an aunt, a woman, an Asian woman, a Korean woman, an immigrant, an alien resident, a neighbor, a friend, a girlfriend, a human, a soul, a stereotype, a history... and I am also a composer. I love swimming, playing select video games (but not all), and making Korean food. I also love IPAs and sour candies.

Check out some of my newest works!

H. A. N. Y. U. N. I. M. is a set of four songs, and each of them is my letter of some sort to my grandmother who passed away in March 2022.

This is a premiere by myself and violist Harris Bernstein in New Haven, CT in April 2022.

... does not remember the footprints of birds is vaguely about remembrance, and oblivion. Funny enough, this piece was written pre-pandemic and premiered mid-pandemic, and I forgot nearly everything about my process of writing the piece! I do remember, though, that I was inspired by 박준(Joon Park)’s poem, 문병. So here’s an excerpt:

익숙해지지 않아야
울지 않을 수 있다

해서 수면은
새의 발자국을
기억하지 않는다

Huge thanks to Ji Su Jung for commissioning and premiering this piece!
