Han-earl Park

Improviser, guitarist and constructor Han-earl Park (박한얼) has been crossing borders and performing fuzzily idiomatic, on occasion experimental, always traditional, open improvised musics for twenty years. He has performed in clubs, theaters, art galleries, concert halls, and (ad-hoc) alternative spaces across Europe and the USA.

Park engages a radical, liminal, cyborg virtuosity in which mind, body and artifact collide. He is driven by the social and revolutionary potential of real- time interactive performance in which tradition and practice become creative problematics.

“Guitarist Han-earl Park is a musical philosopher…. Expect unexpected things from Park, who is a delightful shape-shifter….” Brian Morton (Point of Departure)

“Han-earl Park… is as at home in underground Noise as he is dueting with free jazz heroes like Paul Dunmall. Park uses pedals to smudge and smear chords or rolls out strange robotic grumblings, a technician playing electricity as much as the guitar.” Daniel Spicer (Jazzwise)

“Remarkable strategies from the guitarist which involve investing each string with a different weight as he coaxes tones from near the machine head all the way down past the bridge.” Ken Waxman (JazzWord)

“Imaginatively dissonant barbedly-wire phrases and false-harmonic scatterings….” Ed Pinsent (The Sound Projector)

“Park applies every technique to his detuned ax—tapping, sliding, muting, twisting the machine heads. It’s simultaneously disciplined and barbaric.” Greg Burk (MetalJazz)

“Park is the one to pay close attention to… the development of his ideas is fascinating and very logical….” Jeph Jerman (The Squid’s Ear)

“Pieces of dismantled gestures, destabilizing timbres, and impressive synergy.” François Couture (Monsieur Délire)

“Han-earl Park’s idiosyncratic guitar style was beguiling, his array of tiny, sharp sounds glinting like fragments of broken glass.” Scott McMillan (The Liminal)
