Sound Installation (2 channel audio, hand-made speakers, wall-mounted text) 2007

Threnody was originally created for the exhibition Black Powder + White Party at Kyung Hee University Museum of Arts, Seoul, South Korea, 13 Sep – 19 Oct 2007.

It is a sound installation inspired by Korean Royal Ancestral Shrine Music. Elements from this traditional form of Korean music were used as source material in the creation of a 20 minute electroacoustic composition. The sounds of string and wind instruments, percussion, chimes and vocals were looped, pitch-shifted, time-stretched, layered and digitally processed to form immersive harmonic drones and shifting rhythmic textures.
