About the artists:
 

Andrew J. Yang (USA/Iceland) deemed "a prodigy, [running] the emotional gamut from brooding introspection to manic exuberance" (The San Francisco Examiner), has lived in Patreksfjörður for the last couple years where he teaches at Tónlistarskóla Vesturbyggðar. Most recently, he won the top prize at the International FLAME Piano Competition in Paris, France, and received the "White Rose" Medal of Honor from the President of Finland, Sauli Niinistö, for musical excellence. Yang received a Master’s degree in piano performance from Mannes School of Music in New York City, and both B.A.in Economics and B.M. in Piano Performance from Northwestern University.

 

Myung Hwang Park (France/South Korea), both pianist and composer-in-residence, received Master’s degrees in Composition Theory and Film Scoring at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, one of the top programs in the world, while being laureate of scholarships from the Tarazzi Foundation and Leg Jabès Foundation Composer. He also holds a Master of Arts degree with piano at Haute Ecole de Musique de Genève. Park did numerous collaborations with animation schools such as Les Gobelins, Atelier Supérieur de l’Animation de Sèvres and with Conservatoire européen d’écriture audiovisuelle(CEEA) for a pilot of series. Park is one of the most ingenious young composers of our time.
