Text by Korean novelist Kang Hee-young (via Google Translate):

"I listened to 'there is no more snow on the television' for the first time wearing earphones at a cafe that observes social distancing, but the indoor background music refused to keep my distance by myself and penetrated the narrow gap between the earphone and the ear canal. . That easy and clear melody made me imagine the opposite situation, and I was able to concentrate more on the sound I heard thanks to it. ‘What will happen if you put on noise-cancelling earphones in a small room with their new album playing loudly? Will that white, smooth high-tech transform into soft orange earplugs at once? If there is a sound that digs into the ear canal like now, would it be clear, bare, or dull? What's the difference?' Of course I wouldn't try.

I wrote down the tracklist in order in the notebook. All of them are in English, so I translated them into Korean. And I circled the first track, bud, several times, which was probably due to my preoccupation with earphones. (These days, earbuds seem to be more preferred than earphones.) So, for a while, it became awkward to just listen to music like a singer struggling with not knowing where to put his hands on stage, so I suddenly started to rummage through novels. And one thing became clear, and that was the fact that Kwang Program's new album was written but very suitable for reading novels. There seemed to be no background music more suitable for examining the unfinished ones. Incompleteness is usually not because of the lack of a skeleton, but because of the lack of flesh. So, the new eight tracks on the program were excellent at slicking into the sloppy lines of the skinny story, and I thought it was pretty blatant. In this way, noise easily finds empty places anywhere and fills the space. close the gap approaches slowly. ignore the distance Yes. This is probably not right. In today's world, ignoring 'street'! So, if you're a person who wants the wrong thing, or if you're often surrounded by stuff you're making, at least you want to, you might want to listen to Kwang's new album with earbuds.

After listening to the album several times, I was quite surprised by one fact. There was no excitement. I was listening, I was listening, and I didn’t hear or seemed to hear. And I was somehow pleased with this distinct numbness as never before. Indeed, if only the notes they left out were arranged in order, I wanted to create a melody that was quite pleasant to listen to. would it be okay Is that possible? It's probably not going to happen. But thanks to you, I was convinced. The conclusion is that such a delusion corresponds precisely to the purpose of the Kwang program. It seems very natural for those who “musically and acoustically pursue the power of the aesthetic and cultural reaction that the culture surrounding it rather than concentrating on the pop form and composition of rock” pay attention to the outline of the song rather than the interior. . Above all, they work hard to make the rim sound. What is contained in it is rather secondary. And this album is more faithful than ever to this aesthetic pursuit. In other words, by skillfully omitting musical effects that evoke sensory satisfaction, Kwang's third full-length album 'there is no more snow on the television' secretly blocks the conventional excitement that listeners expect from rock. You'll focus on the sound they touched, feeling like you're hearing something rather than hearing something. You'll keep guessing what the silhouette of that noise is covering.

Of course, sometimes a familiar scale can be heard in the distance. But I can't really tell if it's the sound coming from the earphones, coming from outside, or if it's just tinnitus. That ambiguity was heightened when I listened to track 6 Everyday We Are and track 7 The Sun Walks, where the regular beats and loops from beginning to end seemed to herald something to come (or backwards), and I have already recorded several albums. I hoped nothing would happen despite (or because I was) listening to it. Sounds that don't settle anywhere. The Kwang program leaves a sound that is not here now by pursuing something that is neither so nor bad. The impurities are scattered over the residue filtered through the sieve of use. So I can't say 'good' about their album. Such a word is nonsense. Instead, I merely confess that I was relieved by the strange will to find silence, not the familiar compulsion to resist it. I feel like I'm not hearing anything. It's a quiet you can enjoy. Oh, and come to think of it, ‘bang’ is an onomatopoeic word for collision and explosion. The remnants of the melody ignoring the distance and flying in all directions."
