Dohi Moon is a Berlin based Korean composer, pianist, and multi-media artist. Her music has been commissioned and performed by well-known soloists, ensembles and orchestras in the United States, Norway, France, Germany, and Asia. She studied piano performance at Seoul National University, South Korea and she obtained her doctoral degree in music composition at Michigan State University, U.S.A. Before moving to Berlin, she served as a visiting scholar at the CCRMA (Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics) at Stanford University, U.S.A.
