SUN-MI HONG ALISTAIR PAYNE DUO IN:人
Sun-Mi Hong & Alistair Payne have a long track record playing together in a wide array of projects. Together, they form the driving force for the Sun-Mi Hong Quintet and Alistair Payne’s: This Thread Walks. Thanks to this, they are extremely sensitive to each others ideals in life, and in music.
Quarantine time sprouted some new roots for the duo; the drive to keep experimenting and expressing
the moment; showing that art is not optional. The debut album “IN:人” being the fruits of their labour.
Trumpet & Drums is not the most common line-up, however it’s easy to forget you are listening to either of these instruments. Expect breath and footsteps, a woman wailing and a door squeak. Long textural passages that resemble the sandy scrapes of a carpenter’s work bench. The experience is dream like.

TOURDATES AND AVAILS
"Trumpet and drums: substantial tools when betaking oneself into danger zones, greet the dragons and sounding the world. These duets, created with Occam’s razor seem to be both engraved and volatile, evident and ungraspable, daring and down to earth… And above all: they excel in playful clarity. Scotsman Payne and Korean woman Hong are part of a young and vibrant international scene shining in Amsterdam." Henning Bolte
