A new work has been created by adding creative music from KMP (Korean Music Project) to the beautiful and dynamic gestures invented by Australia’s Restless Dance Theatre and Korea’s Light and Sound Friends over the past 2 years.
In particular, Park Sang-seo, a dancer from Light and Sound Friends, and Korean musicians will gather in one place to perform a live performance. Restless Dance Theatre, who unfortunately cannot be here this time, will be adding dynamics to the live performance by being screened on a large LED screen, and will be joining us in that way.
We look forward to a wonderful collaboration of the three teams that have united beyond each’s limitations – physical distance, time, space, and disability – through this artistic performance.
Improvisation is the key feature regarding the music of Correlation. The outline of the music was drawn from the initial stage of composition by referring to Kim Jung-gil’s ‘Chuchomun for Eight Instruments’, the Daegeum melody in Kim SngKn’s ’Trio for Daegeum, Violin, Cello’, and the rhythms of Nongak for percussions.
Furthermore, in consideration of the role of this music in harmony with the choreography, the performers were allowed to play freely within the aforementioned outline while watching the choreography, and as those improvised elements gradually settled to find their place within the choreography, the music that became one with the dance was completed.
