Activating architecture like a musical score, based on free interpretation.
While South Korea is in a frantic race towards modernity, tradition is still very much a part of everyday life. For example, the music comes from a street performance called “Talchum”, a traditional Korean shamanic dance. Masked, the dancers humorously explore social issues by caricaturing everyday characters to call for equality and criticize social hierarchy. The audience is invited to join in by shouting and applauding. The sounds recorded on site were integrated into the score.
