Pink Floyd’s ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ Played on Korean Gayageum Sounds Cinematic

The anthemic aesthetic of Pink Foyd‘s “Another Brick in the Wall” is undeniable. If it hadn’t already been adapted for its own feature film, we’d have hoped to hear it accompanying an intense scene from a Hollywood blockbuster.

Luna Lee — a master of the Korean gayageum (pronounced kaya-goom) — has adapted one of Pink Floyd’s biggest hits with her instrument of choice to create, if possible, an even more cinematic masterpiece.

 

Lee has adapted the gayageum — an instrument with anywhere from 12 to 21 strings — to be used with amplifiers so it can compete with the big sounds provided by guitar, bass, and drums. Lee has been recreating contemporary classics and hits since 2009 (more Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, and Prince barely scratch the surface of her work); she goes into further detail on her Patreon page, saying “the gayageum has a beautiful sound and amazing potential so I wanted to share my music with many people.”
