RACHAEL SOOJI KIM
Sooji is a Naarm-based instrumentalist and collaborator. Her work draws on her interest in early electronic and electro-acoustic works, embedding warmth and character in her often surreal worlds. Her first solo LP 'FIRST LOVES #2' was released in 2021 featuring the legendary Sequential Prophet 10.
Sooji works with various collaborators conducting investigations with timbral collisions between acoustic and electronic instruments. An upcoming release featuring a project with woodwind and analogue synthesisers will be available in 2023.
Sooji is a member of Stathis//Davey//Kim, a composer collective creating large-scale outdoor sound works with analogue synthesisers (Mona Foma 2020, 2021). The composers were recipients of the Creators Fund Grant in 2022 and are currently developing a new major work for presentation in 2024. Stathis//Davey//Kim will be launching their debut LP 'Improvisational Excerpts' in Japan in April 2023.
Sooji also performs in the Art-beat trio Empat Lima, and audio-visual project Anuencia (Bryan Phillips.)
