R2MP

R2MP is the musical aspect of Jiwoong Yoon’s ongoing ‘rAWrAW project’, a multifaceted exploration of creative endeavor begun on the 10,000th day of his life. Along with DJing, R2MP usually collects sounds and compiles them for art performances and exhibitions. He has had over 10 solo shows and has curated various types of events in 7 different countries.

From 2010-2011, Yoon stayed at Haeinsa Temple (UNESCO Heritage Site) to curate a contemporary art festival for finding common ground between Buddhism and the Arts. R2MP has also teamed up with Seoul producer Mang Esilo to form a duo called “6=2+4.”
