YIJU in the International Examiner

International ExaminerJudith van Praag wrote an insightful review of YIJU 移居: Songs of Dislocation called Entering a New Dimension. Here's an excerpt:
"Leaving the street noise behind, you open the door to the new media gallery, to enter a surprising landscape of sound, light and darkness.

Surround sound and darkness envelop you. There's whispering, a soft murmur, the filling in of sounds, until followed by cymbals, string instruments, voice another crescendo and again silence. Ongoing repetition and yet each time something totally different." [PDF]
