Introducing GunKy, Musician and Composer

GunKy started composing music back in the 8th grade. Now a student at the Berklee College of Music as a CWP (Contemporary Writing and Production) major, he writes and arranges music, sings, and plays several instruments.

GunKy grew up in Jakarta, Indonesia, but he is 100% South Korean. Through his dad's record collection, he was introduced to a wide range of international artists such as Queen, The Eagles, and ABBA. The first instrument he learned was the piano, and he then picked up violin, singing, drums, and guitar; he considers himself the most proficient with the drums.

Today he enjoys listening to many genres of music, including electronic music. His original written works focus mostly around the rock genre, but he has been expanding into many more genres, including but not restricted to experimental with hints of jazz and Latin music most recently.

To learn more about GunKy, find him on Facebook, and listen to his music on SoundCloud. In the selections on SoundCloud, GunKy is playing all of the instruments, though he is primarily a drummer. He is the male voice in the songs (with the exception of some screaming parts).

Here's a cool example of one of GunKy's original alternative rock compositions:
