Amsterdam x Seoul Experimental Music Exchange

"Typewriter snare drum," "open CD player," "acoustic turntables" and "piezo-camera-pen" are some of the imaginative instruments coming out of Seoul's underground music scene. Five Korean musicians come to the Netherlands to work at the STEIM studios to further their unique take on electro-instrumental music. Although coming from radically different backgrounds, each artist share an acute sensibility in finding hidden sounds within repurposed objects and self-build instruments. During their artist-in-residency they will build new instruments, record new material and perform in different cities ending with a concert at SMART PROJECT SPACE on Thursday, November 17th. Since 2010, STEIM and LIG Art Foundation have established an international network to exchange and support adventurous musicians and sound artists. Prior to this event during November 2 - 5th,  six STEIM artists will visit Korea to perform and teach workshops at the LIG Art Hall in Seoul.

Three Experimental Musicians from Korea.
Collaboration between STEIM, LIG Arts Foundation & OT301

Ryu Hankil - typewriter, motors, drums
Choi Joonyong - open cd player
Hong Chulki - acoustic turntables


Although mainstream entertainment has become one of Korea's largest exports, it's underground music scene keeps a low profile to the western world. However, a handful of dedicated artists have developed a highly personal instrumental practice that is utterly unique in the global landscape of experimental sound. Three musicians central to this scene will be in residence at STEIM to record and will perform a concert at OT301 as part of their extensive European tour supported by the LIG Arts Foundation in Korea.
