PRESS QUOTES

For the past several years Sima Kim has established himself as one of the most prolific new acts you can come across. This young, classically trained Korean composer and musician has so far covered it all – electro-acoustic pieces, piano based minimalism, ambient drone, tape experiments and all possible amalgams between them. So when I heard he’s putting a tape through Toulousse’s BLWBCK I expected something in that vein. Surprised is a weak word for what I heard in the promo I was sent.Ur Silhouette is an entirely new side of Kim’s music. Here his neo-classical and ambient work gives place to six delicate rhythm driven pieces. Still atmospheric, still super precise as usual work but very diverse and bold. We got some eclectic hip-hop (“Then I Could Die Today” with J?l?l S?l??m and “I’ll Lose Every Single Bet” with Josué Josué) and dubstep-soaked tnes. All built by micro sounds and simple beats both enshrouded with thick atmospheres. That makes the time spent with Ur Silhouette somehow tense until it finally outbursts and ends with “Isolated”, a killer piece lifted up until the very clouds by the outstanding voice of Gregory Hoepffner (Almeeva), who also mastered the record. Hear Isolated below and reserve a copy because… boy, BLWBCK releases are always selling too fast maybe cuz they know what’s really worth putting out! – Stereofox

[release] sima kim - ur silhouette

image

With “Ur Silhouette”, South-Korean producer Sima Kim offers up a 6 track EP filled with down-tempo beats & synths, far from the modern classical & ambient of his previous releases. Featuring New Yorker J▲l▲l S▲l▲▲m on the tense “Then I Could Die Today”, the Spanish rap of Mexican Josué Josué on the hip-hop flavoured “I’ll Lose Every Single Bet”, and the beautiful voice of Gregory Hoepffner on the dubstep influenced “Isolated”, this EP hops genres, mixes scenic collaborators, and succeeds in crossing spheres. It leaves us hoping “Ur Silhouette” is not just a one-time experience for the increasingly prolific Kim.

[release] sima kim & wouter van veldhoven - sketches

Sketches 
Sima Kim & 
Wouter Van Veldhoven 
CS / DL • UR062
Pro-dubbed on chrome tape. Packaged on cardboard box 100% recycled, silkscreen printed. Includes insert and download code. Limited edition of 80 hand numbered copies. Mastered by Nicholas Szczepanik. Preorder Now.


Sketches is the split album of Sima Kim and Wouter Van Veldhoven (side A and B correspondingly). The name clearly states the nature of the pieces, but the two sides have different intentions and different meanings. Sima Kim’s are ambient and melodic tracks with small cuts. Delicate minimalist pieces are corrupted only by the micro tonal changes, the rhythmic axis function in his music, short essays of melodies processed on tape and digital. On the other hand, Wouter Van Veldhoven’s side is a collection of sound recordings and exercises that cover a long chunk of time and have been kindly assembled here as the drafts that every artist generates along his path. Condensed improvisation and abstraction are finely built here by manipulating tapes and the implementation of several instruments, some of them built by Veldhoven himself. Sketches is a compelling documentation of the creative processes of Sima Kim and Wouter Van Veldhoven. It is a suggestive flirtation between two proposals that despite their instrumental and conceptual differences coexist perfectly sharing their concrete and minimalist nature.

[release] variations for musicbox

Sima Kim returns to Unknown Tone Records with 

"Variations for Music Box" 

Using only a tiny music box, guitar, and tape-loops, Sima weaves 11 variations together based off the same initial theme. He has created tiny passages that take shape and form a new life of their own. Like miniature sonatas, they warp and borrow from the previous idea to help build upon the next; while doing so through the variations of notes, as well as tones and textures. The album also features 3 remixes using the same stems. Two by Monolyth & Cobalt and another by The New Honey Shade. 

The album will be released late January / early February in edition of 100 CDS.

[Review] SWQW - Sima Kim - Debris

"j’ai perdu ce qui restait de moi sur les chemins" (Esteban)

Bien que jeune (à 24 ans, il a déjà quelques albums derrière lui et a notamment collaboré l’an passé avecSaito Koji sur le très beau On The Sea), le coréen Sima Kim n’en possède pas moins le sens de ce qui transporte et hypnotise. Né en Corée du Sud, il a ensuite grandi et étudié en Europe, avant de revenir plus tard en Corée. Entre-temps, il a entrepris plusieurs voyages, d’où il a peut-être ramené cette envie de mettre en forme sa propre musique.

Debris constitue la cinquième sortie physique du label belge Soft Corridor Records, fondé en 2012 parJulien Lambrecht dont le travail photographique accompagne régulièrement les éditions physiques. Ces dernières, souvent en nombre très limité, paraissent toujours dans des enveloppes particulièrement soignées où l’on retrouve également les illustrations de Jess Pauwels.

Sur des pointillés se trace le fil d’une vie dispersée, de restes éparpillés. Eclats de souvenirs, fragments d’oubli, et brisures d’un monde qui se décompose. Trois morceaux principaux encadrés et divisés par quatre titres plus courts, de Debris #1 à Debris #4. En sept pistes traversées par l’onde fragile de la disparition s’élabore l’art du discontinu, s’invente une réécriture d’une histoire à la fois personnelle et commune.

Drones, nappes et sons synthétiques ou acoustiques sont ici manipulés, traités, enrobés d’échos et de réverbérations. Sima Kim les dirige et les emporte pour mieux les faire osciller et chavirer entre eux. Il maintient les textures en suspension, leur insuffle d’infimes mouvements qui viennent frémir contre la lumière ou l’obscurité.

Car Debris est avant tout un album inscrit à la fois dans l’inquiétude et une forme de mélancolie lumineuse tendant à surgir au fil de l’avancement du disque. Sur Night Flight, les murmures et chuchotements d’Heidi Harris viennent donner voix à la peur qui rebondit et se cogne contre les parois d’un antre sans nom. Il y a là une respiration aux aguets, et les bruissements de la crainte rampant sur le sol. Where I Was With You, au contraire, éclaire de ses nappes le mouvement d’un cycle sans fin. Pièce centrale de l’album, longue de vingt minutes, elle se tient là où tout se boucle, à l’infini, avec l’autre.
