Bora Yoon's 'Sunken Cathedral' CD Release Performance

"Sunken Cathedral" by Bora Yoon (Innova, 2014).

Sunken Cathedral is a multimedia album release by Korean-American composer, vocalist, sonic surrealist, and 2014 TED Fellow Bora Yoon. Designed as an architectural and archetypal journey through the subconscious, each track on the album illuminates a different sonic "space," which excavates memory, insights and intersections in which our greatest diamonds and demons are held. Accompanied by art films featuring the otherworldly kinetic sculptures of U-Ram Choe, Sunken Cathedral is about death, life, rebirth, and the cyclical nature of the universe; the alchemical moment of transmutation where one medium becomes another.

Reception will immediately follow the performance.

Community partner: Korean American Film Festival New York
