Nihil is a Latin word meaning “nothing” or “emptiness.” In a modern world, many people feel as if nothing is meaningful. The work expresses a hope of going beyond the nothingness. Its beginning part that starts with a fast beat portrays a mindless ego wandering without a clear purpose, stuck in a sense of emptiness. The following haegeum solo depicts a dance of insanity coming from the frustrated state of mind. The work goes on to express an intensifying dance through the dosalpuri jangdan. The repetitions and extensions in the piece’s initial part express an idea that nothingness always coexists with us and also pushes us forward, making us live our lives with a fresh mind.
Consisting of three musicians who play the gayageum, geomungo, and haegeum, Hilgeum seeks to create sincere musical sounds in this chaotic world. All of the band’s works are written through the three artists’ collaboration.
Gayageum instrument: Cho Yo-In
