Performance in Brief
[The Story Of Millennia]
The sound that is passed down for thousands of years.
The sound that calms the wave.
Dae geum was made in order to hope for peace
during the time of King Sinmun of Shilla Dynasty.
Dae geum is made by many processes such as
removing the resin out of the bamboo tree, drying,
attaching the white membrane from the reed,
and drilling holes onto the bamboo.
Dae geum which is made through such long and precise
processes contains a meaning that is more than just
a musical instrument.
The breath with soul, passing through Dae geum,
touches nature and hearts of people.
Having a soft and dignified sound when low, and having
an animated sound when high, Dae geum is the sound of
a king that sets the central sound of every musical instrument.
The resonance of Dae geum which has been passed down
for ages will subtly yet massively convey a message of peace.
