Hello, I am Hongchan.

I deeply care about how people interact with music. With that in mind, I am always searching for new ways of composition and sound design. My career as a professional musician started at 2000 in South Korea, and my passion has grown to digital art and creative coding ever since.

This enthusiasm led me to a wonderful journey at CCRMA (Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics) for the pursuit of PhD in music technology at Stanford university. My primary research has been collaborative musicking on the web and I built WAAX, the JavaScript web music framework to that end.

In 2014, I joined Google Chrome team to push the boundary of web-based music technology.

I am living in Palo Alto with my beautiful wife and 2 hyper-energetic boys. I love photography and hand-drip coffee.
