Philipp Rüttgers & Sun-Mi Hong

Philipp Rüttgers – Keyboards

Sun-Mi Hong Drums

Focused on sound and improvisation this duo uses elements of groove and melodic harmonies to create their personal journey through music.

Philipp explores sounds and their development while Sun-Mi uses her rich sound palette of drums and cymbals to guide the listener into an imaginative dream world. Little compositions guide their music but most of the space is used for improvisation. This doesn’t exclude heavy beats and outspoken melodies.

This duo started working before the pandemic in 2020 and evolved as a basis for Sun-Mi’s “Dance in Four Colours” commissioned by North Sea Round Town.
