Korea Town AcidKR/CA
Using an experimental and purely improvised approach to samplers and synths, Korea Town Acid’s expansive and cerebral rhythms sit at the juncture of dubby house, free-jazzy techno and funky ambient territories. Hypnotic compositions are dextrously assembled as skittering, slowly billowing technicolour synth jolts. Building on the momentum of childhood piano lessons and teenage stints as a keyboardist in various bands, Korean-born, Toronto-based producer, musician and DJ Jessica Cho took a liking to improvisation through jazz and hip-hop. Her early career cuts of abstracted house were indebted to Korean folk, experimental hip-hop and even R&B.
With this performance, Cho brings her glitchy and expressive eclecticism with these hardware live electronic compositions which combines hypnotic, spacy and moody vibes with sequenced Arpeggio elements with pulse, using Roland TR8S, JUNO 60, JU06A, TB03 and Moog DFAM.
