Juri Seo

Composer-pianist Juri Seo seeks to write music that encompasses extreme contrast through a unified and fluid, yet complex, structure. She merges some of the fascinating discoveries from the music of the past century - particularly an expanded timbral imagination and structural open-mindedness - with her deep love of functional tonality, counterpoint, and classical form. Her music explores the serious and humorous, the lyrical and violent, and the tranquil and obsessive, and hopes to create work that speaks to the subconscious - music that loves, and that makes a positive change, however small, in the world through the people who are willing to listen to it. She has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Goddard Lieberson Fellowship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the University of Illinois's Kate Neal Kinley Memorial Fellowship, and the Otto Eckstein Fellowship from Tanglewood. She holds a doctorate from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and also attended Rome's Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and Seoul's Yonsei University. She has been a composition fellow at the Tanglewood, Bang on a Can, and SoundSCAPE Festivals, Wellesley Composers Conference, and Atlantic Center for the Arts, and is an Assistant Professor at Princeton University.
