Aaron Karo 12/8/08 Professor Phipps Concert Review The Korean Percussion Ensemble was held in the Annette Recital Hall at the Center for the Arts. The director of the band was Soojin Kim Ritterling . The performance was called "Samulnori", which means "four things playing ." These four things refer to the four instruments used in Nongak . The first song played by the Korean band was called "Tego Sori" by Soojin Kim Ritterling. The song started out with a bang as the bass drums were played . Then, other drums joined the bass drums . This combination of the two different drums playing together had a really good beat and rhythm . The beat started picking up pace after the two drums played together . The song sounded good as it changed it's speed, rhythm, and tempo quite often. The song ended just as it began, with very loud drums and a very quick pace . The next song was called "Yongnam Nongak ." The song started off with gongs playing, and the rest of the band joined in, in sync with the gongs . They were all playing in unison and the song sounded good, as it had good range from higher pitched drums to lower pitched drums. As the song continued to play, I noticed that the bigger gong that was playing, controlled the beat and rhythm of the song . The song sounded as it if were a ceremonial song they played in their country. Then, the drums started picking up the pace of the song along with the gongs . The drums picked up the pace while hitting both sides of the drum. The combination of the gongs
