Intertwined explores the ways in which the instruments complement, contrast and converge with each another. The idea of “Intertwined” is several-fold, as the word itself connotes multiple meanings — intercultural, string instruments (twine), interlocking lines that blur the boundaries between musical traditions and between the instruments themselves. The piece spins an interwoven texture of multiple rhythmic layers, constantly shifting accents, and gritty, buzzing energy.

The piece was originally for viola, gayageum and janggu. The quintet version was made for the Seoul-based Ensemble Collabo.
