A late entry to our local round-up of the International Songwriting Contest.
Bristol Student Jin Suk Choi made the final in the instrumental category. And find out why by visiting www.sonicbids.com/jinsukchoi - Venue-Bristol & Bath`s Magazine


Jin Suk Choi is a humble musician, while in his modesty one can see the likes of the great composers of our time. His music is a blend of life and over-existence. Listening to his music with your eyes closed you'll feel the wind, the oceans, love and passion, sorrow and oblivion, and the magic of universal happenings.

Opening your eyes, you will see a gentleman of grand finesse, soon to be world recognized as one of the most valuable composers under the sun. - Chris S. Douglas - Chairman of Timeconcerts Entertainment, Inc & Sunny Music Corporation


... strong and memorable theme. Very engaging writing, almost inspired. Great job! - Billboard Song Contest 2005


Intro composition very engaging and alluring. .... Very appealing melodically. Soundtrack potential. - Billboard Song Contest 2005


Cool intro, groove. Builds on theme well. When song gets to bridge/chorus it's rockin'. Well structured, constructed. Very listenable. A talented effort. - Billboard Song Contest 2005

Bio

When Picasso began his cubist painting, not did he define that this expression was based on the cubism, but simply mentioned, "I only have expressed what I was charmed with."

'Art is not imitation but creation.'

The fundamental reason why the masterpieces are wanted to be understood and longed for is to appreciate the intrinsic value within these works irrespective of the genres and that, in this consequence, to be set free from it.

From the moment we were born to the point we finish our lives, who would not hold a little hope to pursue our ideals in the lives? For Love, Happiness, Hope or things we can not ever define. In the journey of our lives full of vicissitudes, we repeat a chain of events of confrontation, collapse, cure, new challenge and maturity, and dream every moment.

The ample inspiration of Jin`s music has been brought by this. As billions people in the world are living the completely different lives with different faces and perspectives, he wanted to appreciate the fact that anybody standing next to me now also would challenge him/herself, become insecure, be in agony and look forward to being understood.

"What is the genre of your music?" Jin was asked.

The definition of his music always has been the issues in finding his identity of art and life. Duke Ellington once said that a musician with a veritable style should be a part of a group of endowed artists referred to as 'category-free'. Jin challenges himself to express his music in the versatility from classical, jazz, pop, funk, rock, hip-hop to electronic as he truly believes ‘Music speaks itself? Jin hopes therefore his music is beyond the space-time, race, religion, age and all the possibilities.

With its unique and eclectic sound, Jin endeavors to represent the genuine originality and deliver the deep emotion to the world.
