Humming: Electroacoustic music (musical CD)

Research output: Non-textual formComposition

Abstract

'Humming' is a unique album of Suk-Jun Kim's electroacoustic compositions, inspired by his 'Humming Project', for which he has researched the social and psychological roles of humming.
This fascinating release of world-premiere recordings relates to Suk-Jun Kim's book, 'Humming', published by Bloomsbury, in which he details the 'Humming Project' and its explorations of why we hum. This may be for personal or social reasons, whether to distract or soothe ourselves or to entertain someone else; whether absent-mindedly or consciously. The compositions on this release are inspired by the many different rhythms and sonorities of humming, as well as by references to humming in literature and science.
Suk-Jun Kim's music has been widely performed and recorded. In 2009, he was invited to Berlin by DAAD for its Artists-in-Residence programme, and is currently Senior Lecturer in Electroacoustic Music and Sound Art at the University of Aberdeen.
Proceeds from the sale of this CD will support vital cardiac research conducted at the University of Aberdeen.
