Gamin is master a practitioner of the piri, taepyongso (double reed instruments), and saenghwang (reed mouth organ), and composer of music for both western and traditional Korean instruments. Currently, as a yisuja (designated master) of the Important Intangible Cultural Asset No. 46 for piri and Daechita, she strives to both preserve and enhance traditional Korean music. At Seoul National University and as a member and assistant principal player of the Contemporary Gugak Orchestra, Gamin has used her virtuosity to perform authentic jeongak (classical court music) and sinawi (shaman ritual music), as well as new compositions for her instruments.
Today Gamin experiments and expands her musical realm with interdisciplinary projects in collaboration with international artists. Her most recent project, "Pal-eum (Eight Tones)," transformed a museum into multi-complex concert hall to featuring fashion, video art, and synthesizers.
