Nokha | Hanok Performance in Bukchon
On Saturday, April 21st, at 7pm David Kilburn will be hosting an exclusive interactive music performance with composer Jee Soo Shin at his hanok home in Gahoedong. The event aims to bring awareness to the ongoing plight of Seoul’s dwindling hanok community in the Bukchon neighbourhood.
“Nokha” is an interactive music installation. The performance was designed for, and takes place in a hanok (traditional Korean home). The audience, by their movement in the performing area, conduct and shape the sonic environment around them. “Nokha” was created by the Korean composer Jee Soo Shin.
There will be four players each playing a violin, geomungo (traditional Korean string instrument), flute and a toy piano in different corners of the performance area. The players spontaneously and systematically react to the audience movement.
