KAYIP

Kayip (born and lives in Seoul) After his study in the urban architectural field, he leans towards music. Independant composer and producer, he quickly understands the limits required by the commercial industry to the creative process and decides to study contemporary classical music in the United Kingdom. From 2003 to 2007, he trained at the Birmingham Conservatory then at the Royal College of Music, he distinguished himself with two albums, « Kayip », released in 2005, and « Slow Moves », in 2007. The components of the singularity of his experimental electro universe, are already set : his slow and hypnotic rythms, his introspective melodies, are exploring the labyrinths of half conciousness trough immense landscapes.

The musician’s recognition is quick. In 2007, the prize of the University of music in Aberdeen allows him to create a piece for the irish symphonic orchestra broadcasted by the BBC. Back to Seoul, he multiplies acollaboration. In 2009, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11 mission, Brian Eno choose him to create a new live arrangement of his album, Apollo (1983), at the Scientific Museum of London : Kayip’s talent is widely recognised and the concert remembered as the best performance during the 2010 Brighton Festival. Composed in Seoul his albums « Mo :Tet », 2009 « Theory Of Everything », 2010, then the single « Distant Land », 2011 receive a very good reception.

The young composer is one of the most famous figures of the korean electro scene today. Since 2012 Kayip questions the connections between sound and images through installation. In this way he has presented several achievements in Seoul, including collective exhibitions at the Kumho Museum, at the Ansan Dawson Art Museum, at the Seoul Culture Station 284, and in the framework of the Royal Court Festival, at the Changgyeonggung Palace
