Closing the B.Motion Music programme is a musical duo based in Seoul, which challenges the sonic possibilities of Korea's best-known traditional string instruments: the gayageum and the geomungo. Ethereal and otherworldly, Dal:um creates a compelling sound world that holds subtle dynamics and space between notes, in a dialogue between traditional and experimental practices. Although both Suyean and Hyeyoung had been playing traditional Korean music since their childhood, their meeting resulted in a shared desire to extend the techniques and boundaries of their instruments and to develop their own distinctive repertoire. "The literal meaning of Dal:um is 'to pursue something' and infuse our passion for music," says Hyeyoung.
Similar to a translation of traditional Asian painting and its intrinsic dialogue (and harmony) between emptiness and fullness, Dal:um's wonderfully balanced and expansive music is defined by inspired dialogues and creative paradoxes between silence and expression, contemporary and traditional, full and empty, similar and different.
