About the album
Ha-Yang Kim is a cellist and composer of striking originality whose musical influences draw equally from a range of western classical music, American experimentalism, rock, jazz, and improvised music, to non-western musical sources from Bali, Korea and South Indian classical music. For her seconde CD on Tzadik she presents a major new composition for string quartet, performed here by the world renown JACK quartet. Dedicated to Jewish poet Paul Celan, Threadsuns combines traditional sounds with extended string techniques to create a poetic world of lyricism, harmony and texture. A major new work by this cutting edge composer from Korea.
