Gwanghwamun Quartet is an improvised performance, approaching Gwanghwamun Square as a place of ‘intensity’, interpreting its history and its collective memory.
The performance begins with solo parts for piri (Korean flute), saxophone, contrabass and drum. Followed by a rigorous ensemble of discord. The musicians improvise whilst listening to a soundtrack on headphones composed by the artist using audio collected from Gwanghwamun Square.
