More than just being a performer playing Korean traditional and Western percussion instruments and various special instruments, she is driven to learn about the techniques and methodology of electronic music and sound programming as well. This wide interest made her being active as a DJ and sound designer. Lately, she has been successful expanding her musical career as a music director in various dance and theater pieces, making use of her sound range from traditional to electronic. She now has become a multi-producer who is fully capable of sound designing, producing, composing, and arranging.

전통음악을 기반으로 한 사운드 아티스트 최혜원은 키네틱 국악그룹 옌, 국악뮤지컬집단 타루, 정가악회, 권송희 판소리 LAB 등 지난 10년간 가장 활발한 활동을 펼쳐온 국악계의 창작집단에서 타악연주자이자 퍼커션주자로 활동했다. 전통 국악은 물론 창작음악, 극음악, 현대음악, 전자음악 등과의 접점을 찾으며 최근 5년간 전자음악 및 사운드프로그래밍의 기술 및 방법론을 고민하여, 공연에서 타악 연주는 물론 DJ, 사운드 아티스트로도 활동하고 있다. 또한 무용음악, 연극 등 다양한 작품에서 음악감독을 맡으며 인접예술장르에서도 전통음악 사운드를 적극 활용한 음악들을 직접 창작하고 사운드디자인/작·편곡/프로듀싱이 모두 가능한 멀티 프로듀서로의 활동들을 선보이고 있다.
