"etude for everyday life" is a series of work that transforms everyday objects and practices into sound experience.

" it’s not for playing instruments, but for those things that are not so special or regarded as ordinary and even worthless. I’d like to frame them differently, so that people can also see what they can be, not just what they are produced to be. and when you get it, you’d probably do it over & over again just like practicing a song. Then you’d get good at it. something would change. maybe not so drastic, but something profound, I hope."
