Thursday, September 7 - 7 pm
Crossing Bordersis an exclusive performance by the Japanese producer Scotch Rolex (alias DJ Scotch EGG), the Korean-German percussionist Shin Hyo Jin, originally conceived for for SOUND(ING) SYSTEMS 2021, curated by Nik Nowak within the context of the exhibition Schizo Sonics at Kesselhaus, KINDL – Center for Contemporary Art. The piece interrogates the political and sonic resonances of physical and virtual boundaries.
Scotch Rolex and classically trained instrumentalist Shin Hyo Jin mix experimental electronic music with traditional ceremonial Korean percussion, crossing over the boundaries of past and present. Whilst the performance is an approach of Korean and Japanese relation, it's also a mystical and spiritual rite.
Veteran Japanese producer Shigeru Ishihara is mostly known as breakcore-gameboy legend DJ Scotch Egg. Ishihara has been assembling serrated, genre-busting ear bleeders for almost two decades and is no stranger to collaboration; in recent years he's been spotted working with King Midas Sound's Kiki Hitomi in dub-pop outfit WaqWaq Kingdom, playing bass with electro-shoegaze pioneers Seefeel, and most recently in collaboration with Lord Spikeheart with the name Scotch Rolex.
Shin Hyojin is trained in various traditional Korean music and performing arts by Korean masters and teachers such as KIM Duk-Soo of the Performing Arts Troupe SamulNoriHanullim, KIM Dong-Won, a member of the Silk Road Ensemble and LEE Yoon-Seok of GoseongOkwangdae. Since 1994 she has been performing as a former member of the Samulnori group ChonDungSori and nowadays of Korean Traditional Performance Ensemble DoodulSori. Since 2006 she is co-founder and member of Ensemble ~su, an experimental and interdisciplinary project aimed at expanding contemporary forms of sound and movement in cooperation with performers of diverse genres and cultural backgrounds.
