Her musical materials weave a seamless tapestry of sound with innumerable meticulous details that never fails to attain a dramatic construction with maximum intensity, a sense of exuberance, tempestuousness or soaring ecstasy.

 

These elements in her music have attracted and stimulated number of choreographers and video artists to create their own new works upon her music. Thus Sungji has collaborated with Professor Kim Giblisco [choreography: Kim Giblisco,  Deconstructing Joy (Agnus Dei from Missa Lumen de Lumine)], the Universal Ballet Company [video: Seo-ou Choi & choreography: Yeon-ok Baek, Le Miroir des Eaux (Missa Lumen de umine)], video artist Dimitris Bourdoglou [video: Dimitris Bourdoglou, Spirit] and the Slovenian National Opera and Ballet [Choreography: Stasa Zurovac, Kiklos].

Sungji collaborated with the Universal Ballet Company (choreographed by Yeon-ok Baek) and video artist Seo-ou Choi to create a stage work entitled Le Miroir des Eaux. The work was presented as the opening performance of 2010 Seoul International Ballet Festival. Le Miroir des Eaux (The water mirror) creates a synesthetic beauty by forming a fascinating time-space overlapping between reality and dream on stage for the performance video which combined video, visual arts, music and ballet. It was performed three times in the Seoul Arts Center (Jayu Theater) in Korea.
