Ge-Suk Yeo - Audiovisual Performances/Dance
Current projects of Ge-Suk Yeo for audiovisual performance/dance.
Time Sculptures is an audiovisual performance by the Korean vocalist and audiovisual artist Ge-Suk Yeo.
Time Sculptures is based on a series of electroacoustic compositions.
Time Sculptures is basically about the phenomena of time we all experience at different speed. This is expressed through various rhythms which plays and overlaps at the same time. The rhythms get joined by other sound layers - different in character in every Time Sculptures episode. -
The slowly moving visuals drawing simple white light on black background are based on sound calligraphies, which use very simple lines, points and focuses on the empty space in between.
Premiere 2008 at ICMC 2008/ Sonorities Festival of Contemporary Music, Belfast, UK

'DALBUKKI' is an audiovisual performance.
DALBUKKI is the short version of the Korean words Dal (moon), Geobuk (terrapin) and Tokki (rabbit). Moon, terrapin and rabbit can be found in lots of Korean fairy tales. One of this fairy tales in the Pansori* – the Korean traditional opera – is called 'Su-Gung Ga'**. The story is about a crafty rabbit and a faithful terrapin. Ge-Suk Yeo's DALBUKKI deforms the story and transforms it into modern spirit: Now it narrates from a terrapin which fells in love with the moon, a raging search of the rabbit and somebody who feels followed by the moon. -
