K-Pop Throwback: Examining The mystical Qualities Of Haihm's 2014 Unmarried 'Bird No Singing' VIDEO

still from Haihms Bird No Singing music video still from Haihms Bird No Singing music video Electronic producer Haihm at work. British writer Arthur C. Clarke once claimed that "any sufficiently complexgeneration is indistinguishable from magic."

I'd argue that musical technology, from the earliest drums to the maximumrecent doodads, has at all times been imbued with that magical quality.

In her riveting unmarried from 2014, "Bird No Singing," Korean electronic producer Haihm uses the most present examples of "magic" in her music.

Haihm is yet any othera section of the wave of impressive feminine synth artists popping out of Korea, adding Shirosky and Kirara. As a classically trained pianist, the Seoul-based Haihm does not shy clear of complexity and has the chops to back it up.

Originally released at the 2014 EP "Point 9," the track "Bird No Singing" demonstrates that whilst Haihm is a wonderfully capable singer, she prefers to shy faraway from words and pay attention onnatural music in thisprolongededition of that track. Although her vocals do make some fleeting, albeit chopped-up appearances.

"Bird No Singing" opens with fleet snippets of vocal sound, not anything beyond a syllable. This has a form of now-you-see-it-now-you-don't effect.

As I discussed previously, magic.

The methodology of popping sounds out and in of the mixture at whim is going back to the heady days of early dub reggae, when manufacturers would permit horns or other delayed-out tools to be audible and then grab them away. This created an effect that used to bemost unlikelyto replicate in are living performance, yetin the process the magic of the recording studio, the rest would soon be possible.

As "Bird No Singing" continues, that nod to the early days of dub blending jujitsu remains a constant, while other parts come into play.

Strictly speaking, the solein point of factbasic musical part that makes itself heard all over all seven mins of "Bird No Singing" are 3 dulcet chords on what sounds like a Fender Rhodes. Beyond that, it is all technological manipulation.

Percussion plays a bigsection in the piece, but in an excessively untraditional way. Back in the days of strictly acoustic performances on recordings, the collection ofexact drums to be had to the performers may smartly be limited to what a single drummer would be capable to playing, in even the most ostentatious cases, finite by way of nature. By the usage of what may be any variety ofpc programs, Haihm is ready to manipulate the pitch of her drums to just about any pitch.

Suddenly, she has an impossibly massivestove of "drums" to play with. Magic? You be the judge.

The low-pitched bass frequencies do notappearto attemptto mimic any specific instrument, and the sweeps of sound that swoop thru the combine borrow from the outdated couple of decades of analog or virtual synthesizers. Time and area are rendered meaningless in this context.

Over the patient expanse of "Bird No Singing," Haihm is able to slowly build into a deserved saturation point. By the time the song has reached its climax, the drum programming doesn't resemble anything a "real drummer" might or would be capable of play; it is the musical sound of machines going berserk.

Describing it's going to brandthe finish result audio wildly out of control, but of course, moderatelythe other is true.

Haihm is able to exploit frenzy to signifythe sort of catharsis we seek from music, while working from a position of overall control.

The sense of chaos is a trick, or, as others might insist, an illusion.

Which K-Drama Girlfriend Would You Have As A BFF

Which K-Drama Girlfriend Would You Have As A BFF

High Society

In "High Society" Lim Ji Yeon and Uee play best friends. They like to eat together, walk together and talk about the men that interest them.

And Lim Ji Yeon"s character Lee Ji Yi is willing to give up her crush on Sung Joon"s character Choi Joon Gi just because Uee likes him. That"s friendship for you.

Their friendship may be threatened by the news that Uee is really a rich girl and does not need to work for a living, but given how close they were, we like to think it will survive. Li Ji Yi is the kind of best friend every girl wants.

One of k-drama"s least pleasing lot twists is to pit two women against each other in competition for the same man. K-drama women have done some pretty awful things to each other in the name of love.

And even the nicest girl characters in k-dramas often don"t seem to have any friends.

But there are a few k-dramas that focus on female friendship.

"The Legendary Witches" is a drama in which women from different backgrounds bond in prison and are there for each other after their release. Under the leadership of Han Ji Hye, they form a family.

"Angry Mom" also featured a friendship between two women who were there for each other no matter what. Go Su Hee"s colorful character even pretended to be Kim Hee Sun"s mom when they were originally school classmates. She took on the bad guys for her friend and supported her cause when everyone else was telling her to quit.

In "Who Are You - School 2015," Kim So Hyun"s wealthier character had friends who defended and supported her, even when she turned out to be twins.

In "Personal Taste" Son Ye Jin had the worst girlfriend in the history of k-dramas. Her friend, played by Wang Ji Hye, stole and was planning to marry Son Ye Jin"s boyfriend without even telling her. But fortunately, her other friend, played by Jo Eun Ji, stood by her side and even encouraged her to get closer to Lee Min Ho.

Female friendship plays an important role in a few dramas, including "Boys Over Flowers," "The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry" and "Protect The Boss."

In "Protect The Boss" Choi Kang Hee and Ha Jae Suk are best friends, but Wang Ji Hye plays Choi"s rival. However, part way through the drama Wang Ji Hye"s character learned the value of having a friend and started spending more time with both these friends.

It"s not that k-drama lovers don"t enjoy the romance and the melodrama, but it is nice when the heroines get the love and support of their BFFs.

Which k-drama best friend would you claim for your own.
