The name Ciss stands for Creation of Instrumental music SenSation
Being an immigrant in Canada, Ciss has spent 13 years of his youth in Korea where his fundamental of musical style were developed and later years in Canada had given him opportunity to adapt new style in his music through his new life in Canada.
Living in a multicultural city, Ciss has learned to adapt and experience new cultures without having to abandon his own ethnic background and these valuable experiences has given and challenged him in musical style as well. By accepting and merging in with these cultural differences, Ciss was able to express his thoughts and feelings more freely and widely through music with his unique colour.
His interest in music began as his love of video games grew strong when he was 13 years old. Fanatic to Final Fantasy game series, famous Japanese Role Playing Game, has struck Ciss with inspirations as he was absorbed by its game playing and melodramatic atmosphere created by music. Music alone was enough to capture his mind but combination of imagery, interactivity and sound were so powerful that it has turned Ciss' life around in instance.
Beginning of his musical training, his inspiration came from Nobuo Uematsu, the main composer for the most of the Final Fantasy series and developed his composition skills by imitating his music. And now he's pursuing his goal as a composer while he's still experimenting with new sounds and trying to present his stories in his own colour.
