How a ‘multimusician’ with over 1,000 songs written and arranged sees the world

-Music gives the universe a soul, gives wings to thoughts, allows the imagination to fly, and gives life to all things.

These are the words of Plato, a philosopher from Athens in ancient Greece.

We talked to music director Lee Ki-hyun about how music became everything to him.

“I love that I can dream freely when I’m doing music.”

For music director Lee Ki-hyun (41), who sees the world with his mind, music has been his best friend.

When he first encountered music, he felt like he had wings, and when he realized that he wanted to live with it for the rest of his life, he felt a hot life force burning in his heart.

For him, music became everything and a dream.

A musician who just loves music

Mr. Lee’s path to music was not always smooth.

When he first picked up the guitar, he played it lying down, and when he first picked up the drums, he played with his left hand up.

It wasn’t uncommon for him to stay up all night practicing to master a single chord토토사이트.

All of this came from a love of music.

“When I hear a song and I’m playing the piano, I’m like, ‘I have a good ear,’ and I’m like, ‘Absolutely not, it’s just the repetition and the time and the effort that goes into it.'”

■ A hardworking musician

Mr. Lee currently plays a variety of instruments, including keyboards, guitar, and drums, and he also composes, arranges, and produces music.

He has written and arranged over 1,000 songs.

All of this is a result of my own efforts to get closer to music.

He says he’s not a genius, but he’s worked harder than anyone else.

“Even if I’m struggling right now, if I don’t give up and keep trying, I think there will be good results.”

■ Inspiring musicians

In addition to his solo work, Lee performs with the Tamigim Band.

They play set pieces, but he says he enjoys communicating with music through improvisations called jams.

The band’s leader, Mr. Tamigim, said they met through a chance client relationship in the 2000s and have been together ever since.

“I don’t think there’s any other musician that touches and fulfills my heart as much.” – Tommy Kim

Musicians with positive energy

Mr. Lee says he takes his disability with him.

He noted that there is a pervasive view in our society that separates people based on their disability.

Disability is not about overcoming something different, but about living with something that is a little uncomfortable. This is the kind of society Mr. Lee would like to see.

“I don’t know what darkness is because I’ve never seen it, and I think I’m more comfortable with it because I have no idea what it feels like to be dark.”

“In foreign countries, I’m introduced as a ‘positive’ musician first, not a ‘disabled’ one. I’d like to see people categorized by their disability a little less.”
