The already not yet (이미 그러나 아직) (2017)
The already not yet describes the tension between the present and the future time in the Kingdom of God in the New Testament. It represents the kingdom that already exists in the believer's life, but that has yet to reach its fullness. The piece explores the tension created by these two different tenses in ‘the already-not yet’. The ambiguities of the ‘already’ caused by the pandemonium and disturbances in this life are expressed with a variety of musical events over tonal centers underlie the piece. As the music reaches the ending, the tonal centers remain to reveal the final consummation of God's kingdom in the final days.
