Korea Town Acid aka Jessica Cho is a classically trained pianist and multidisciplinary musician artist from South Korea, currently based in Toronto. Using an experimental and purely improvised approach to samplers and synths, KTA’s expansive and cerebral rhythms sit at the juncture of dubby house, free-jazzy techno and funky ambient territories. With this performance, Cho brings her glitchy and expressive eclecticism with these hardware live electronic compositions which combine hypnotic, spacy and moody vibes with sequenced Arpeggio elements with a pulse, using Roland TR8S, JUNO 60, JU06A, TB03 and Moog DFAM.

As a producer, she contributed to the track “Play No Games” on Cadence Weapon’s 2021 Polaris Prize-winning album Parallel World. When it comes to DJing she is eclectic, currently the host of a monthly radio show in Brooklyn’s The Lot Radio. Her most notable showcases were Mutek, Pop Montreal and Boiler Room, shared stages with globally renowned artists including Floating Points, Objekt, Machinedrum, MoMa Ready, Kyle Hall, Leon Vynehall, Yeaji to name a few. Korea Town Acid’s first album “Metamorphosis” is entirely self-produced with Dave Cooley (Tame Impala, J Dilla, M83) on mix and mastering duties. Her new self-released record “Cosmos” is supported by Canada Art Council, expressing lo-fi, electronica and drum’n’bass.

Technologies are evolving faster than ever before and becoming a part of our daily life. Should musicians adapt to these changes and how? What disciplines should they learn to be ready for the industry?

I think musicians should try to adapt to these changes, and AI will be helping musicians to unlock and complement their creativity. Though It’s up to AI developers to make it accessible for the artist to supplement their process with AI, as not all musicians will be able to engage with the technical development of these tools. 

As AI becomes more and more powerful, will the role that artists play in the music industry change? What will they do? What will their day-to-day job look like?

While AI could potentially take over a large part of composing as AI gets more powerful, the role of musicians and artists would be to continue to engage with current world events and cultural developments, to provide inspiring input to these tools to create relatable content for the audience.
