Translated as “reach touch,” Dah Eum is Korean sound artist Una Lee’s experimentation with the ideas of friction and contact. Using wood, stone, and water, Lee’s made an ultra-minimal but tense set of pieces. Due to the manipulation of her material, the few items she uses seem alive, as though turned animal by their use. Play all/any. No words, no FCCs.

1. (5:32)—Paper being crumpled, faint field recordings, slurping sounds.
2. (4:54)—Small wooden items in a box being shaken. Breathing/scraping sounds?
3. (3:17)—Wood being sawn. The saw sounds like it’s breathing heavily.
4. (4:01)—Stones shifting, water clicking and bubbling. Sounds cut in and out.
5. (4:29)—High-pitched, bloopy sounds of water drops popping. Bird sounds. Slow, squeaking scraping.
