Norae (2010, 2012)
 

For this art work, I directed a performance and designed a stage. This stage was created with the intention of delivering the beautiful traditional Korean classical music, called Gaggok. Generally Korean traditional instruments play along with vocals. However I presented only female vocals to focus on delivering the delicacy of Gaggok. The stage was widened at the front in order to deliver great acoustics without electronic devises.

 

노래 (2010, 2012)

 

내가 공연 감독과 무대 디자인을 담당한 이 작품은 우리나라의 아름다운 전통 음악인 가곡을 최대한 제대로 보여줄 수 있도록 무대를 디자인 했고,  가곡의 섬세함을 강조하기 위해 일반적으로 공연에 연주 되는 전통악기 반주를 배제한 채 오직 여성 공연자의 목소리만으로 구성된 공연을 기획했다. 전자 음향 기기 없이 최상의 음향을 전달하기 위해 앞부분으로 갈수록 넓어지는 형태의 무대가  설계 되었다.
