Abstract

Midong (a Korean word) is translated as “a motion or a movement that is so small that you cannot tell whether it has ever happened.”

This piece is mainly driven by the characteristics of a few discernible sounds and the propensity of circulating motions. The unity of the piece is therefore maintained by these continuous, yet being in still, movements and characteristics of the sounds that are in memories. Another important character of the piece is silence, which gives the piece an understated rhythm and works as one of the factors that bind the piece as a whole.
