Music Composer-Sound Transcriber

I invited nature to the five lines.

background

+ artistic

philosophy

Dasol Lim uses her music to make people understand the musical theme of their first hearing intuitively. Her composition is developed with harmony and melody, between tonal and non-tonal. At the same time, some pieces are a raw transcription of natural phenomena onto digital media. She begins by transcribing and putting together the sounds of natural phenomena without subjective interpretation of natural sounds. Her ultimate purpose is to have the listener transported to an immersive sound experience.


Her composition draws inspiration from numerous non-artificial phenomena, nature, and human psychology, and ranges from solo pieces to small or large chamber music. Many of her works combine music and space in various ways. Her fascination with the portrayal space of music goes hand in hand with her interest in the hyper-realistic portrayal of sound.


Over time, she has focused on capturing and processing sounds of inanimate objects, animate creatures, and natural phenomena. Her preferred way to collect sounds is to ask a network of interdependent artists who fully understand the musical instruments’ characteristics to express the sounds she wants.


She is interested in and appreciates creating an aural space based on the sounds of reality and her imagination. Because she wants to be away from the comforts and conveniences of civilization; so she invited nature to the five lines of her sheet music. This comes from pursuing something natural and not perception-saturating in an era of fast-paced civilization.


Dasol is pursuing a Master of Fine Art in Composition and Experimental Sound Practices at the California Institute of the Arts. Her teachers include Michael Pisaro-Liu, Carolyn Chen, Clay Chaplin, Anne LeBaron, Jonathan Thomas Miller and Laurel Halo.
