Topic: [UCI CCKS] Korean Sensibility and the Double Reed in Korean Film Music

Description: Lecture Recital and Panel Q& A, 'Korean Sensibility and the Double Reed in Korean Film Music'

Moderator: Kyung Hyun Kim (Professor of East Asian Studies, UC Irvine)

Speaker:

-Christopher Dobrian (Professor of Integrated Composition, Improvisation, and Technology, UC Irvine)

-Yoon Joo Hwang (Assistant Professor of Bassoon, University of Central Florida)

-Inyoung Park (Korean Film Composer, String Arranger)

-Jung Choi (Assistant Professor of Oboe, Missouri State University)

-Jisoo Lee (Korean Film Composer, Assistant Professor of Composition, Seoul National University)


Yoon Joo Hwang (Assistant Professor of Bassoon, University of Central Florida), Jung Choi (Assistant Professor of Music, Missouri State University), Jisoo Lee (Assistant Professor of Music, Seoul National University, Korean Film Composer) and Inyoung Park (Korean Film Composer, String Arranger) all studied Western classical music in Korea. Lee and Park studied western composition and write music for Korean films.


Their music style is different than John Williams's (Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Harry Potter) and Hans Zimmer's (Gladiator, The Lion King) styles. Korean film composers use idiomatically Korean harmonies, unique emotion, and sensibility in their Korean film scores while using Western composition techniques.

 

When you listen to music from Oldboy (2003), you can hear the influence of classical music such as the waltz. Although Rampant (2018) is a Korean historical drama, Park worked with the London Symphony Orchestra to play Western classical music. Viewers can hear a mini symphony or string chamber ensemble, expressing the moods of the different scenes. At the end of the lecture, Jisoo Lee's film music will be played on classical instruments.
