Experimental electronics composer Haeyoung Kim (a.k.a. Bubblyfish) joins forces with the versatile contemporary music pianist Kathleen Supové and video artist Adam Kendall for a performance of Kim’s new piece, Hidden, Lost, Forgotten, for piano, computer, and gameboys, accompanied by live video. The piece is a suite composed of 4 movements, derived from a lullaby that Kim’s parents used to sing for her when she was sick as a child. Based on the rhyme and the gesture of a hand rubbing a child’s stomach, the piece consists of a piano solo, sound collages of voice samples, a piano and gameboy duet, and gameboy improvisation.

Kim creates lo-fi 8-bit sound pieces and minimal electronic compositions. Her work has been presented in various art venues, clubs, festivals, and galleries including The American Museum of the Moving Image, Eyebeam, the New Museum and the Lincoln Center Walter Reed Theater and has been heard on WNYC radio and Spongefork Radio on the web. She is a recent recipient of the Van Lier artist’s residency at Harvestworks media art center. Her work has been featured in Art Forum magazine, on MSNBC and in the NYFA Interactive online magazine.
