Biography
Unsuk Chin was born in Seoul in 1961, and has been living in Berlin since 1988, has a knack for binding together seemingly irreconcilable extremes. A youthful enthusiast of the late-twentieth-century European avant-garde, she studied in the eighties with György Ligeti, a pioneer of alien soundscapes. Her breakthrough work, the 1993 song cycle “Akrostichon-Wortspiel” (“Acrostic Wordplay”), was partly inspired by the Alice stories, which Chin had loved since childhood. Her teacher, too, had long been under Alice’s spell, and planned to write an opera on the subject. When Ligeti died, Chin set to work on an Alice opera of her own, using a libretto co-written by herself and the playwright David Henry Hwang.
