Grants Awarded2013 | Music | United States
ACC provided support to Hyo Sun Kang to explore contemporary music activites in the United States.
This unique concert presents Korean traditional music by artist, and ACC alumni, gamin, performed alongside active New York-based American wind and percussion instrument players Ned Rothenberg -- also an ACC alumnus -- Jeff Fairbanks, and Satoshi Takeishi. Artists play Korean traditional instruments such as piri, the Korean bamboo-oboe as well as saxophone, clarinet, trombone, and shakuhachi, the Japanese flute. This performance encourages the audience to learn about the Korean wind instrument piri and pungnyu, an artistic form of recreation, intrinsic to a tasteful lifestyle and relevant to Koreans’ collective and individual entertainment culture.
