Samul: Jing

Research output: Non-textual formComposition


Samul:Jing references Jing, a Korean percussion instrument.

The piece tries to reflect upon the characteristics of the instrument, which may not necessarily focus on its sound objects and qualities; rather it tries to wonder about the environments it resonates with.

The piece is the first part of a five-sectionalized piece, Samul, which refers to a fairly new form of Korean traditional percussion ensemble that calls for four different percussive Korean instruments. Jing is said to symbolize wind and functions to create a sound space in which the other three can play.
