Sangtae Jin (Seoul, South Korea)
Born in 1975 in Seoul, Korea, Jin Sangtae performs with non-musical objects collected through his experience, projected into instruments, and then re-organised into the space. He uses hard drives and several materials that can be connected as a main instruments, and he also plays laptops, radios, car horns and electronics. He’s been uploading online his composition ‘Year‘ via mobile phone everyday since 2015. He founded ‘dotolim‘(a small space for improvised music) and has been organising the ‘dotolim concert series’ since 2008 as well as the festival ‘dotolimpic‘ in 2012, 2013 and 2017.
Choi Joonyong (Seoul, South Korea)
He founded Astronoise(the first noise project in Korea) with Hong Chulki in 1996, and has been playing so-called noise/experimental/improvised music since then. He usually plays playback devices such as CD-player, MP3-player, tape player, VCR, and loud-speaker by utilizing the fallacy to expose their innate sounds from the mechanism. He is involved in collaborations with other artists and released many albums including five solo albums such as Danthrax which is made with malfunction of CD-player. He is interested in control and failure of playing through improvisation and composition. Recently he is working on solo performances questioning the inferiority and perception of sound which changes according to the surrounding environment and context. He runs a label called ‘Balloon & Needle’ releasing experimental music from Korea and does the cover design for most of the releases since 2000. He also plays bass guitar in a doom metal band ‘Vomit & Tear‘ with members of SklavenTanz.
