Innovative musician Jin Hi Kim presents her live interactive performance with computer programs on the world's only electric komungo and visual media. She also collaborates with Asian American virtuosi musicians who are immigrants from Korea, China, Japan, the Philippnes, Vietnam, India, and Indonesia. Using traditional instruments, her Asian Sound Revolution ensemble captivates the musical world by bringing ancient aesthetics as well as highly original innovations in new sound.
Jin Hi Kim has performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Smithsonian Freer Gallery of Art, Asia Society (NYC), universities throughout USA, and international festivals around the world. The New York Times wrote, "Virtuoso, Jin Hi Kim promises thoughtful, shimmering East-West amalgams in combinations that are both new and unlikely to be repeated."
Recent years Asian Sound Revolution has performed at Yale University, University of Chicago, Detroit Institute of Art, and Roulette (New York). With multiple instruments as well as stylized vocal techniques coming from ancient practices, Asian Sound Revolution will perform all original music, including solos, duos and ensemble pieces: The ensemble engage the audience through their skilled improvisation and create new traditional sounds through electronic techniques with their small, yet impressively powerful, ensemble.
