A concert has a double meaning for music fans _ both live music and an extravagant entertainment show.
However, some artists are returning to the basics in music by making good sounds for the audience, rather than visual entertainment shows.
The project concert titled "Audiologie", a new concept combining "audio", and "ideologie" featuring four musicians in a relay is designed to produce excellent music through the high-profile artists' performances throughout September and October.
The four musicians are R&B ballad diva Park Jung-hyun, jazz pianist Kim Kwang-min, pop ballad vocalist Yoon Jong-shin and rock band Jaurim.
The concert will run at the Theater Yong in the National Museum of Korea in Seoul for 16 days in relay. The concert is the first pop concert to be held by the theater since it opened in 2005.
Visitors will be able to indulge themselves in a variety of music genres such as R&B, pop, rock and instrumental sorts under the same theme of acoustic and lyrical sounds by the four musicians.
Tickets cost from 44,000 to 66,000 won. For more information, call 1544-5955 or visit the Web site of www.cfnmk.or.kr.
