Haedong Seoungguk – Daegeum Dosa (D.K. Huru Mix) [Tonal Unity]
The traditional and the contemporary meet on the latest 12″ from South Korean label Tonal Unity. Continuing the label’s appreciation of organic and meditative sounds, experimental percussionist Haedong has enlisted some of Seoul’s most talented musicians to explore early music and ritual ceremony over two original tracks, while on the flip Antinote regular D.K.provides two hypnotic reinterpretations for the dance floor.

Seungmin Cha – Nuunmuun LP
A steady point of focus
A meditative state
An abstract energy
A perpetual flow
A new perspective
This is an album about consciousness expanding toward awareness of self. Focusing on a single point for long enough that you dive into it and come out on the other side, tapping yourself on the shoulder from behind. Think of it as circumnavigating your reality and washing up on a foreign shore that is familiar, yet entirely new. That has been this artist’s voyage as she made her way through her musical evolution, and this record is that foreign shore.
We are proud to present Seungmin Cha’s first solo release “Nuunmuun”, which translates to “Eye Gate”. Step through the portal and into the parallel universe of this singular artist.

I’m currently residence in NYC as a research fellow of Asian Cultural Council. Hope I could spread out to you.
As magnolia flowers spread out and disappear
You spread out to me
And become me
Again I spread out to you
Is the only way to live
The flowers spread out and become fruit.
Summer spreads out and turns into autumn.
Music spreads out and becomes a paint
Life spreads out and becomes death
And the death spreads out
Again and shines light on this life
And again, evening spreads out and
To spread out is to love
A cottage at the skirts of the mountain spreads out
And becomes a spring butterfly that flies by
