it feels like a dream

Pianist Eunbi Kim’s sonic memoir it feels like a dream features a soundworld of classical music threaded with an indie-pop awareness–– expanded by the hypnotic projected visuals of new media artist Xuan. 

This immersive multimedia performance explores issues of family and identity. It offers listeners the soundspace to meditate on the dreams they carry and pass on.


it feels like a dream includes works by Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR), Angélica Negrón, Pauchi Sasaki, and Sophia Jani for piano, pre-recorded voices, and electronics written for and performed by Kim. 


Developed in part during an artist residency at the Baryshnikov Arts Center where it was premiered.

Note: For venues without projection capabilities, this program is also available with music only— live music without the visuals.
