Kunsu Shim


Label: Another Timbre

Format: CD

Genre: Compositional

In stock

Four chamber works for strings by Korean composer Kunsu Shim, plus six short pieces written for Kunsu by composer friends. Performed by the Luna String Quartet.

Kunsu Shim’s compositions explore the beauty of imperfection and fragility, of simplicity and complexity in natural life, operating at the peripheries of sound and noise. Perception, not purpose, lies at the core of this music. The creation of such sounds is happening in extremely soft and quiet volumes with small changes of character either in a structural or textural form.  In his scores Shim asks his musicians to act with tenderness, care and warmth, lightness or gracefulness - thereby evoking the utmost sensitivity and attention in players and listeners alike. Perception is a kind of attentiveness. Attentiveness is concentration. Concentration is - according to Walter Benjamin - the soul’s natural prayer.
