JinHwa Choi

With dewdrops dripping, I wish somehow I could wash this perishing world. (Matsuo Basho)

Hello, welcome to visit JinHwa Choi, a composer's page.

I am a composer from South Korea and is currently completing my DMA at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland with Michael Hersch.

My musical language is inspired by various aspects of life including painting, poetry and my own daily experiences. Although I originate from Korea, my musical style is not limited to that region. I combine Asian and Western musical characteristics in my works.

My compositions tend to illustrate impressions through boundary-less tonal and atonal language. I am also interested in creating electronic music and combining my music with art exhibitions.
