Music and videos by Dave Black & Cylvi Manthyng, two New Zealanders living in South Korea.

The pieces here are made from remixed field recordings of traditional Korean musicians and instruments such as the gayageum, taepyongso, buddhist chants and samulnori drumming, plus our live version of the folk song ‘Arirang’.
