Precise in achieving a subtle tone of emotion, inventive, passionate, meticulous, and versatile, composer SUNGJI HONG embraces multiple identities and cultures that have interrelated within her and have contributed to creating a synthesis of both distinctive and global ideologies that manifest into the music she writes.

Her compositions include works for solo instruments, orchestra, chorus, ballet and electroacoustic media with special interest on timbre and pre-determined pitch structures. Her musical language is colorful with a wealth of imagery and exquisite delicacy.

“In Ms. Hong’s setting the antique influences were melodic, and the harmonies and fluid dynamics modern”
