in collaboration with Jacek Smolicki

During his performance in Seoul, Jin Sangtae brings the electromagnetic fields that Jacek Smolicki transmits in real time from somewhere in North America into the theatre where he performs and into the objects that he plays. Each in their own way, the performers occupy the space where collision and merging occur.

Jin Sangtae plays non-musical objects that he collected and transformed into musical instruments. He connects and combines hard drives and other items such as laptops, radios, car horns, and electronics to use them as a main instrument. Since 2015 he has continued a composition project Year in which, every day, he uploads a one-minute composition he has recorded using his mobile onto the web. He founded ‘dotolim‘- a small space for improvised music - and has run the dotolim concert series since 2008. He was also an organizer of the festival ‘dotolimpic’ in 2012, 2013, and 2017.

Jacek Smolicki is an interdisciplinary artist, designer, and researcher. His works bring historical, critical and existential dimensions to listening, recording and archiving practices in human and more-than-human realms. Besides working with historical documents, archives, and heritage, Smolicki develops other modes of mediating stories and signals from various sites and temporalities. His work is manifested through soundwalks, soundscape compositions, diverse forms of writing, experimental para-archives, and audio-visual installations. He has performed, published, and exhibited internationally and currently holds an international postdoc researcher position at Linköping University (funded by the Swedish Research Council), Simon Fraser University in Vancouver and Harvard University.

진상태 / ㄷ7ㄴ
(야섹 스몰리키와 협업)
진상태는 야섹 스몰리키Jacek Smolicki가 북아메리카 어딘가에서 실시간으로 전송하는 전자기장을 그가 공연 중인 공간 – 서울의 한 극장 – 과 연주하는 물체의 면으로 끌어들여 다시 구성하는 퍼포먼스를 한다. 두 퍼포머들은 각자의 방식으로 부딪치고 채워지는 공간을 점유할 것이다.

진상태는 자신이 수집한 사물들을 발음체로 전환시키고 그것들을 공간에 재배치하는 퍼포먼스를 한다. 해체된 하드디스크와 노트북, 라디오, 자동차 경적 등 여러 사물들을 연결하고 조합해 주 악기로 사용한다. 2015년부터는 매일 핸드폰으로 1분씩 녹음하여 만든 곡을 웹에 공개하는 ‘Year’ 프로젝트를 진행하고 있다. 기획자로서는 2008년부터 즉흥음악 공간 ‘닻올림’을 설립해 현재까지 연주회를 이어오고 있으며 페스티벌 ‘닻올림픽‘을 2012, 2013, 2017년 기획, 진행했다.
