Darkroom Processing: 吃飯了嗎?/밥 먹었니? is an original composition premiere. The work is a self-created silent film that is played alongside original music, heavily utilizing improvisation, to tell the film’s story. 

We focus the work on scenes of New York City and friends in our circle to ultimately empower our identified community, centering the people who we care about the most. The phrases in Mandarin and Korean (which translate to “have you eaten yet?” in English) are customary greetings that signify care for another person which forms the heart of our performance.

In narrative motion picture, music is usually designed as an adornment to a director’s film. In this concert, we will challenge the relation of music to its score and the picture, as through this work, the film will arguably be the score instead.
