Samulnori Percussion

FORCES OF NATURE

A Samulnori ensemble generally consists of four main instruments (samul: four things, nori: to play) Puk, Janngu, Jing and K'Kwaenggwari - each represents an element of nature:

Jing: Wind | Janggu: Rain | Puk: Clouds | K’kwaenggwari: Lightning.

In a minimal ensemble there will be just one of each, but sometimes larger groups have four or more of each instrument.

Samulnori has its roots in farmer’s music (nong-ak), and includes not only music but dancing to celebrate harvest times. The music also stems from the shamanistic tradition of utdari pungmul, which is performed on these same instruments together with singing and wind instruments. In its modern incarnation, samulnori relies solely on the four instruments featured here.

 

THE HUMANISE MODULE

Samulnori Percussion

Each Samulnori instrument features Humanise controls which can add random variations to the timing, velocity, tuning and volume of each hit.

This makes it possible to introduce the natural differences and organic feel of a human drummer to each drum. This makes it very quick to create stunningly lifelike ensemble percussion pieces.
