Hasla

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

"I was in this land called Hasla. A far-off land in which everything seemed familiar and yet oddly alien; a place you have never traveled to and yet which in a strange way is similar to every city you’ve ever visited, which – no sooner did you arrive – you already left again. At least that’s how I remember it. But how can I tell of a land that doesn’t exist?"

Hasla consists of electroacoustic compositions that are inspired by a poetry of localization and spatialization of sound. Calmly and transparently, these sounds formulate questions whose answers are delayed, in a kind of tonal dream logic that lends the pieces their tension. Suk-Jun Kim (*1970 in Korea) studied in Canada, the USA and France, and was a guest of the Artists-in-Berlin Program of the DAAD in 2009 / 10.
