Artist bio (via the label):

" Leo Chang (he/him) is a Korean improviser, composer and performer of avant-garde music currently living in Brooklyn. Born in Seoul, Leo lived as an expat in Singapore, Taipei, and Shanghai, and then moved to the United States in 2011. Needing to assimilate to different cultures from a young age, Leo expresses rootlessness and multiplicity within identities through his music, while being skeptical of norms and definitions. Leo traces the origins of his fractured identity-formation to colonial legacies that continue to this day His art is an act of home-making inspired by various musical and ideological movements that have sought to question power dynamics and imagine freedom within egalitarian possibilities. His primary methods are free improvisation, written text, graphical notation, and electronic processing.

Leo frequently performs as/with VOCALNORI, which amplifies vocal sounds through gongs and cymbals via electronic instruments. He also plays the piri, a Korean double reed instrument, in untraditional ways, often processing his piri playing using electronics.

Leo's various performances and collaborations have been with William Parker, Alex Zhang Hungtai, gamin, DoYeon Kim, eddy kwon, Vong Pak, Chris Williams, Lester St. Louis, Miriam Parker, Erin Rogers, Lucie Vítková, Jason Nazary, Jeonghyeon Joo, Adrianne Munden-Dixon, SEM ensemble, the Rhythm Method, and the JACK quartet. From 2017 to 2021, Leo organized Ensemble Consensus, a collective of experimental artists who transformed creative prompts into music by designing performative rehearsals.

Leo has shared his artistic practice at various gatherings: notably the Vision Festival, Ostrava Days New Music Festival, New York City Electro-Acoustic Music Festival, and the International Computer Music Conference. His projects have been supported by the Brooklyn Arts Council, Korea Foundation , EMPAC at Rensselaer, Chashama, and the Tank, among others. Leo's upcoming and recent discography can be found on Infrequent Seams, Notice Recordings, Dinzu Artefacts, SUPERPANG, and Tripticks Tapes."
