WeatherReport is Seoul based art collective of Kim Jiyeon -pianist/composer/sound
artist and Yi Gangil-media artist/programmer. Since 2016, they have practiced live
streaming art in form of installation, performance, and transmission art. Recently
they have shown audio-visual performances integrating piano playing, live streams,
realtime data visualization at [Transparent Music], [Piano Day Seoul], [Jeju-London
network sound performance].
In this performance, we show audio-visual work that uses live streaming as an element of music; Piano performance with ‘network echo’ which comes back through the server as musical shadow. Real-time streaming sounds outside the theater. Responsive data visualization of the flow of such sound signals. Through this performance, listening and seeing music can be led to experiment with the expansion of the concept on spacetime.
soriquete is a crossover performance group formed by a sorrikun, flamenco guitarist, and dancer who met on Jeju Island.
The group name "soriquete" combines the terms "sori" from gugak (Korean traditional music) and "soniquete"
(to sing or dance freely to the beat) from flamenco, and signifies a meeting between gugak and flamenco.
Flamenco songs are recreated by the sorikkun, while the flamenco guitar tunes mix with such sori works as “Korea traditional songs”. The exquisite crossover results in unique performances which are unfamiliar, yet familiar; exotic, yet traditional. And, the flamenco dance movements with powerful, rhythmic stamping of the feet are expressed with the soriquete tunes. Through the soriquete performances, you could enjoy an unfamiliar meeting of flamenco and gugak that results in melded genres.
