With the project “Bijul” Halym Kim presents a new band that plays original compositions which are influenced by traditional Korean music. The Korean influences are coming from different types of the traditional music such as shamanistic, folkloristic and percussive music and they are transmitted into a context of experimental and improvised music. All pieces are composed by Halym Kim and express his interpretation and perception of a “foreign” culture. The compositions also display his thoughts about the political situation in South Korea, the Korean philosophy and their current society.
