"Dance music, aided by electronic medium and digital technology, has been evolving at an impressive rate enough to cultivate cultures through its. My aim was to accelerate this progression to drag dance music into a critical discussion. In other words, to deprive the privilege of what is envisioned as legit music, into an imaginary hierarchy based on various musical myths, and so that to democratize music.
At the same time, I desired to teach music to computers, following my belief that they will be able to compose, perform and evaluate music better than humans.
« You Won’t Find My Punchlines Here » is my endeavor to implement these ideas through music, empowered by the programming language.
It might be as the state of attempt in regard to the above-stated aspects, however, I do hope it is still danceable."
Sima Kim is appropriating the lingo of post-grime and meta
r'n'b as very few artists have achieved up to now. His new album on
Speaker Footage consists of seven aural vignettes that flow like
semi-solid mouthwash on dry ice, sprung with melodic lines that can
open a deep wound but also provide the cure.
