Byungseon Park
I am [ ]ing, Seoul


Year: 2016
Instrumentation: clarinet
+ electronics (stereo+subs), earplugs
Duration: ca, 10′

Program note:
The traditional musical space, which we call “concert hall”, is built to maximize the “proper” resonance of instruments.
It is a publicly shared cultural space.
That historical chamber does not exist anymore in this piece, but we appreciate our own personal small room, i.e. ears.
In this personal room, we may build a new instrument and a new musical space as well.
Extreme loud noise space, where we cannot hear anything else and even get pain without protecting our ears.
In the closed-ear room, the dangerous space is not something horrible, but it provides an experience like a spacewalk. The earplugs, in this situation, are the same as a spacesuit.
They filter out all the unpleasant obstructions and let us be conscious of the very pure essence of the human sense.


*Using headphones is recommended.

eigen II

Year: 2016
Instrumentation: Trumpet, four horns, tuba
+ electronics, earplugs, sound installation
Duration: ca. 15′

Program note:
We face numerous spaces in our daily life.
Our perception of the corporeal spaces is influenced by countless variables (e.g. temperature, air pressure, brightness, capacity, etc.), and changes with the passage of time.
All the time we differently absorb the visual and acoustic spaces depending on the conditions.
eigen suggests a contrary possibility of the spatial perception.
Through the entire piece in two different corporeal spaces (opened, isolated), one encounters static high and low tones that are lying on the boundary limit of human acoustic perception.
They are not something that is “listened” to in the manner of our musical culture, however, they create impervious unchangeable spaces. Our real ambient spaces, i.e. concert hall and lobby, are fremd in this situation.
In this piece, earplugs allow one to be conscious of the invisible spaces that would be ignored in the ambient spaces
The historical function of the concert hall is neutralized and one may take a completely pure spatial experience in one’s personal room.
