Soojin Suh Chordless Quartet is a project formed by Korean creative music artist and drummer Soojin Suh. Soojin released two albums with this project, "Strange Liberation", in 2018 and “Roots To Branches” in 2021. The concept of the Chordless Project is to explore freedom from all polyphonic instruments as a metaphor for freedom in society. In an era where individual freedom is becoming increasingly important, freedom of the individual which lacks consideration for others can erupt, at times, into violence against others. This idea sits at the heart of the Chordless Project. The exclusion of polyphonic instruments, which normally supply the harmony, creates higher degrees of freedom for the remaining instruments. Rather than erupting into chaos on stage, the interplay between the group members, embodying civility, testifies to the ultimate freedom and beauty that can be created through consideration for others. “Roots To Branches” is her story about the invisible link between ‘human to human’, ‘human to society’ and ‘human to nature’.
