[Herald Interview] Ji Pyeong-kwon’s gugak crossover resonates in ballet ‘Korea Emotion’ – The Korea Herald

Ji noted that all three scores –“”Mirinaegil,” “Bee Yeon” and “Arirang” featured in “Homage to Korea” — were not commissioned pieces. He had created them driven by genuine passion. They were part of his personal project, “Daul Project,” a crossover endeavor for the globalization and popularization of Korean traditional music. “They weren’t written with a specific purpose, just out of my curiosity and enjoyment of the creative process. Fortunately, they eventually found their purposes. I think it’s the nature of creative art — success often comes after 99 failures.” Ji’s “Daul Project” remains an ongoing venture. In 2021, Ji released “Daul Project — Jeongga,” delving into traditional court music, designing it as soothing and relaxing compositions. He also runs a YouTube channel, creating relaxing music for personal enjoyment, often inspired by natural landscapes through footage he films himself. “Whenever I have free time, I try out different things. Perhaps, the next project won’t have any lyrics (unlike “Jeongga”). It could be a different genre crossover. I’m not sure, but the reason for doing it this way is because I want to carry out the project purely out of passion and artistic inspiration.”
