Drop-in

Anton Lukoszevieze and Bartosz Glowacki of Apartment House present a recital of music for cello and accordion by Isang Yun. Founded by cellist and interdisciplinary artist Lukoszevieze in 1990, the group has presented performances of avant-garde and experimental music worldwide.

BIOGRAPHY

Korean-born composer Isang Yun’s (1917–1995) life and work are an important ongoing influence for Haegue Yang. Isang Yun is celebrated for his compositions which combine East Asian musical traditions and European avant-garde techniques. Yun gained international acclaim working in West Germany, before his abduction and imprisonment alongside hundreds of Korean intellectuals and musicians in the notorious 1967 East Berlin Incident. Yun’s contentious life symbolises the ongoing ideological divisions of the peninsula, while his work translates impressions from his turbulent transnational biography into a distinctive musical language.
