Park Jones – Park Jones
Released November 17th 2017
NOREMIXES regular contributor Joo Won Park has been in collaboration mode lately. And this complete album of material with saxophonist and electronic musician Molly Jones is just one of this prolific composer’s recent explorations. Here’s a quick taste of the recording sessions behind Park Jones. Album coming soon.
On December 2nd, we’ll be releasing the second NOREMIXES album from composer, Joo Won Park. The album is entitled Modulationist and finds Joo Won expanding the palette of his last album Overundertone by including acoustic instruments into the mix. Hunter Brown joins the composer on opener, ‘Hallelujah’, for vibraphone and electronics. Later, Hunter is joined by Louis Pino on the rhythmically challenging ‘JNNJ’ for percussion duo and electronics. Theodosia Roussos is the oboist that gets lost in ‘Swamps, Showers, and Creatures’, and Giovanni Bertoni takes on Park’s electronics with two clarinets on ‘Armor+2’.
Pre-orders are available via iTunes and Bandcamp, and with a pre-order, you’ll receive ‘Armor+2’ immediately for download. If purchased through the NOREMIXES bandcamp, you’ll also receive scores for three of the pieces from the album.
This past month Joo Won Park recorded a new work for vibraphone & computer entitled “Hallelujah”. The piece was performed by Hunter Brown in one of Oberlin Conservatory’s beautiful halls. He shared a video of the recording. Check it out below.
Joo Won Park was at Fidget in Philadelphia last night to perform works from his new NOREMIXES album “Overundertone” in 8 channel surround sound. It was a great night of music, as Joo Won was also joined by composers Maurice Wright, Mark Zaki & Adam Vidiksis. Here’s a clip of Joo Won performing “Snake and Ox”.
