News Briefs

UCSC faculty perform in Australia

Hi Kyung Kim

Rituel III, a composition by associate music professor Hi Kyung Kim, received its world premiere during a concert in July at the Symposium of the International Musicological Society in Melbourne, Australia. Presented as part of a program titled “Korean Music Today,” the piece was also performed at the Intercultural Creativity Festival/Conference in Sydney. A paper, titled "A Contemporary Globalisation of Korean Arts and Religion: Hi Kyung Kim's Rituels," was also presented at both events by musicologist Jinmi Davidson of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

Rituel III is a collaborative work featuring composer Kim; multimedia artist and UCSC assistant art professor Elliot Anderson; clarinetist and music lecturer John Sackett; percussion lecturer William Winant; San Francisco Conservatory cellist Jean-Michel Fonteneau; stage director and music lecturer Brian Staufenbiel; lighting artist Sylvie Vray; and Ensemble Parallele, conducted by music professor Nicole Paiement; plus music performed by the Korean ensemble: Jeong Seung Kim on daegeum, Chan Hae Lee on jing, and dancer/choreographer Aeju Lee, the Korean National Intangible Treasure in Buddhist Dance.

Rituel III will receive its U.S. premiere next May at UCSC's Pacific Rim Music Festival. Subsequent performances are planned for Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco.
