Jin Sangtae

Jin Sangtae performs with non-musical objects collected through his experience, projected into instruments, and then re-organised into space. He uses hard drives and several materials that can be connected as the main instrument, and he also plays laptops, radios, car horns and electronics.

He’s been uploading online his composition ‘Year’ via mobile phone every day since 2015. He founded ‘dotolim’ (a small space for improvised music) and has been organising the ‘dotolim concert series’ since 2008 as well as the festival ‘dotolimpic’ in 2012, 2013 and 2017.
