    "Pasakalia," a concerto of the gayageum Sanjo in the Gangtae Hongryu Period, combines the melody and rhythm of Sanjo, Korea's representative instrumental music, with Pasakalia, a variation of the Baroque period.

    Originally, Pasacalia is a form in which a diastolic variation is carried out in the high notes by repeating the same three-beat, eight-syllable low-pitched theme, in which the theme of low-pitched gayageum and Mars (Cm, AbM7, FM7, and Gm7) were added in reverse to prepare for the existing rheumatic gayageum melody.

    Jinyang Jojangdan's three-beat six-word structure and eight-word Parsakalia-style musical instruments are sometimes played by Jungmori rhythm, forming a musical instrument in different joints and sometimes matching each other.

    The first Seoju section presents a low-pitched theme and harmony, and the emergence of Gayageum melody and the contending structure of the musical composition, but as the song progresses, the gayageum melody, and the low-pitched theme and harmony are integrated into one perfect harmony.

    The Seoyong Pomegranate Daegeum Sanjo was handed down following Han Ju-hwan and Han Beom-su, who followed the tradition of the Park Jong-gi Daegeum Sanjo.

    The Seo Yong-seokryu Daegeum Sanjo, composed of various group changes and well-organized rhythms, has become a favorite of those who want to feel the musicality of Sanjo.

    In addition to the melodic aspects, the meticulousness of the rhythm composition and the janggu rhythm are characteristic of the Seoyong Pomegranate Daegeumsanjo.

    If you play the Seo Yong-seokryu Daegeum Sanjo for a long time, it takes more than an hour to play Jinyang, Jungmori, Jungjungmori, Jajinmori, Oomori, and Dongsalpuri.

    In today's performance, Jinyang-Jungmori-Jungjungmori-Jajinmori will be played.

    Jinyang is a place where visitors can appreciate the beauty of the group's transformation into Ujo and Gyemyeonjo. Jin Yang-man's melody is well illustrated by the echo of Cheongui.

    Jungmori often comes out in a paper form in the middle of the song, so it's simpler and more cute than revealing a big stem.

    The Ujo section of the main building in the early part of Jungjungmori has a magnificent and magnificent beauty. Even a small gourd is delicately displayed, adding to the beauty of tension and relaxation, as if listening to a cinawi.

    Jajinmori is the most Pansori-like part of the Seoyong Stone Pond Daegeum Sanjo. It is often used to build up the tune step by step to create tension, and to relax the beat by stretching the beat, and to find the beat again to make it tense.

    Haegeumsanjo was first seen by Ji Yong-gu at the end of the Joseon Dynasty, but at that time it was not called Sanjo, but rather called Sinawi.

    Later, in the early 1960s, the two mountain ranges of Haegeumsanjo were formed by Ji Yeong-hui and Han Beom-su, and have been passed down to this day.

    While Ji Yeong-hee based on Gyeonggi's shamanic rhythm has many clear and cheerful rhythms, Han Beom-su based on Namdo music has a strong surfaction, but it has a simple taste because a lot of anchoring is used.

    Born in Yesan, Chungcheong Province, Han Beom-soo (1911-1980) also left Daegeumsanjo and Tung Ae-jo as the master of daegeum and tungae.

    In the haegeumsanjo of Hanbeomsoo-ryu, many of his own rhythms appear, apparently due to the creation of haegeumsanjo after the completion of the daegeumsanjo.

    The platform consists of Jinyangjo-Jungmori-Jungjungmori-Jajinmori.

    Recommended dance
    This dance, also known as Sinkal dasinmu, is performed with hanji hanging in both hands at the end of a long bamboo called Sinkal.

    The dance, which is not much now, was passed down from the late Yi Dong-an, who was active in Namsadangpae, and was re-established by Moon Il-ji, and was later re-enacted by Gye Hyeon-sun at the National Folk Gugak Center.

    The abundant movement of the earth, which seems to stay in the air while soothing the soul, is characterized by its graceful, neatness and power as if it were heading to heaven.
