About Iseul Kim's Two Voices

Iseul Kim is Composer, pianist, singer and world traveler Iseul Kim is based in NYC and Seoul. She reveals her life stories and cultures through music that has no limits. Having traveled the world and experienced numerous cultures, she has been influenced by different musical styles her entire adult life. Thus, she eventually formed her 9 piece ensemble Two Voices with Korean traditional music influence.

Tearing down a genre and blending two different sounds can result in something completely new that didn't exist in the world before. The use of instrumentation for Two Voices makes this work special since it ranges from Korean traditional music to Western classical music. The music is a culmination of traditional, classical, jazz, and world music concepts that transforms into an original sound for Two Voices that Iseul Kim uniquely creates as her ‘signature sound’.

The Best Jazz on Bandcamp June, 2023

At times, Evolving unfolds as if a strict choreography were being enforced while systematically unraveling it; other times, the ensemble is set loose in free-flowing motion. Isuel Kim’s concoction of modern jazz, Korean traditional music, and classical musics lend themselves well to that environment—thrive in it, really—and the pianist-composer brings it to its fullest bloom. Instruments such as haegeum, daegeum, and janggu lock hands with piano, flute, bass, and drums, their steps as one, as violin and cello sweep them along.
