BAND JINSIL

  • BAND JINSIL is an amateur alternative/folk rock band consists of two composers and a vocalist. It was founded by Jonguk Kim and me, who were roommates attending Ajou University, in 2000. Both of them were obsessed in creating weird music by combining irregular key transpositions and tensions. Also, they were big fans of Radiohead. On the other hand, they were also eager to make their songs sound euphonious by creating their melodies well fit to the strange chords. Soon after, Kahyun Choi joined to the team as a vocalist. The song writers were satisfied with her moving voice and understanding of their philosophy of song writing. They recorded over 20 original songs. Although they started recording using built-in sound cards of their personal computers, their recording techniques have progressed to using decent equipments, such as a condenser microphone, amplifier, compressor, and external recording card. My role in this team is quite versatile. First of all, I'm a key composer. On top of that, I wrote most of the lyrics. Also, recording is my other biggest role in BAND Jinsil.
