Beyond Taegum: Lecture Concert with Hyelim Kim


Performer, composer and researcher, Hyelim Kim, is opening new possibilities for music by using the taegŭm – a horizontal bamboo flute that is considered one of the most representative of Korea’s traditional instruments.

Kim is receiving attention for taking a leading role in reinvigorating Korean traditional music. She was selected as Pioneering Artist by the Korean Arts Council and Kumho Young Artist. She was also awarded the New York Omi Residency and was invited as a musician for a live session on BBC Radio 3’s celebrated Late Junction. In her research, Kim systematically charts Korean traditional music as a PhD student SOAS, University of London.

This event will be part lecture part conference as Kim performs and explains her musical choices and will feature diverse repertories from traditional to contemporary compositions to explain the way that Korean traditional music has been recontextualised in a contemporary and increasingly globalised world.
