Context: This work was created between March and May 1996 on the Power Macintosh computer with the sound-synthesis language CSound and CMask which was written by Andre Bartetzki for Granular Synthesis in electronic studio of Hochschule fuer Music "Hanns Eisler" in Berlin. "Dudri" is an archaic word of korean language. This word is derived from "dudrida" which means "beat" or in some cases "hammer". Some linguists infer that this word "Dudri" meant ancient "the smith god" or "an ode for the smith god". In the Iron Age was the capability of making iron tools or races. It is also supposed that it was prayed by this ode of the japanese traditional music theatre "Singga". The source sound materials were the text of the beginning from "Singga" which has been translated by novelist Young-Hee Lee into korean, sound of hammer on metal, various sounds of metalic percussion instruments and noises of fire, water and wind. By this work the smithery was considered also as a metaphor for a birth of civilization. Therefore the nature noises which was regarded ancient as elements of life was used. The following fragment of "Singga" was used: "dud ddal-ari dal-arira dal-ari a garinal nal-idu, chiriya dal-ari dal-arira dal-aria gari nal nal-idu. By this work the fragment is rather important as a symbol for a petition in the Korean language which are archaic, not actual. This piece was perfromed at ISCM'97(Seoul) and ICMF'98(Kobe). (12'00)
