Maarten Vos & JiSoo Park
Ji Soo Park is an artist hailing from South Korea where she studied classical music. In 2012 she moved to Japan, in search for new challenges, and soon found a space in Tokyo´s vibrant techno scene. After her debut gig at WOMB in Shibuya, she also started to host the renowned Profound Mind night, where she also got to play along a range of other forward-thinking techno DJs.
After almost two years of successful events Ji Soo moved to Berlin where she really feels at home, being in close contact with like-minded people who resist existing conventions and norms, where she seeks the freedom she has been searching for since her childhood. Ji Soo’s atypical and anomalous music will continue to be developed here.

Together they are two musicians with a taste for contemporary electronic and classical music who began experimenting with their machines in 2022 with hour-long techno improvisations in the studio. The results are organically created sounds with the Buchla, and their modular and various drum synthesisers, coming out as techno. Their Superbooth gig on Saturday, 14th of May, will be their first live performance together.
