SE:UM Concerto Series
SE:UM Concerto No.1 <OVER THERE>
Composed by Lee, Joon Orchestra Arranged by Kim, Aera
The song is based on various kinds of ARIRANGS in Korean Peninsula. The song is inspired by famous line of ARIRANG "You are going over ARIRANG hill"(아리랑 고개로 넘어간다 Arirang gogaero neomeoganda). The song manifests the future of hope, audiences can be reached to the bright future over there with this song.
SE:UM Concerto No.2 <BINARI>
Arranged by The Music Group SE:UM Orchestra Arranged by Lee, Moon Seok
The song culminates the purity of time and space where the human beings exist. The lyrics of this sing purify misfortune and baleful influence where human beings are living and blessing. Jazz improvisations fill the space. The song makes ensemble with Korean traditional Jajinmori rhythm and swing rhythm. This is an exciting harmony of co-existence.
Transitioning between the slow and peaceful thrum of the contrabass to the eruptive trumpet and drum is seamless, as is the emotional attachment to each song. The gayageum makes SE:UM's music stand out, for its harmonious rhythm merges perfectly with the jazz beats. Melodic trances induce imagery of walking through the corridors of the past to then be met around the corner by a battleground between trumpet and saxophone. It's genuinely exciting! Someone in the crowd gasped – and it was respectfully acknowledged with a nod from the saxophonist.
- Lydia Nowak
'ABYSS' and 'THE OTHER SIDE' are consequently one piece. This song 'THE OTHER SIDE' extend heavy and solemn air. Powerful trumpet and saxophone sounds overwhelm mood of the music.
Korean traditional rhythm ‘Semachi’ and exotic 9/8 time pattern weave a density. This song is the representative work of music group SE:UM.
‘Pooneri’ that belongs to The traditional rhythm of East-coast area of Korean peninsula and funky beat make turbulence with energetic feeling. Saxophone and trumpet lines break into that turbulence and exultantly dance with Korean traditional percussions. Improvisation that with no break even for a moment and traditional rhythms’ that are based on the cycle of introduction, development, conclusion and resolution(起景結解) make genuinely exciting tension and relaxation.
