Having gained recognition as a member of the Korean neo-traditionalist duo [su:m], Park Jiha broadens her already rich musical vocabulary on her debut solo album. Composing for instruments like the hammered dulcimer and piri (a double-reeded bamboo flute), Park and her ensemble create a quietly intoxicating blend of sounds that skirts between native Korean styles, minimalism, free jazz and contemporary classical composition. To Western ears there are oblique references to Steve Reich and Sarah Neufeld.
