THE PLAZA BOUTIQUE SOUND_STAY
THE PLAZA Hotel has produced Korea’s first lounge compilation album through its sound design project with a “place I want to stay in” concept.
Awaking on a sun-soaked white bed with the calm morning air at 8am,
revitalizing with afternoon tea time at 3pm,
or relaxing at the lounge bar and savoring the thrill and charm of the evening at 7pm,
the hotel ambience and allure that changes over time is realized by the sounds from three of the most stylish contemporary musicians, Free TEMPO, Ji-Yong, and Jin by Jin.
Free TEMPO is an electronica musician in Japan and one of Korea’s most popular international musicians. With an enchanting melody, the original song ‘STAY’ is modern with a feeling of warm space. The melody, sensitivity and nostalgia of Free TEMPO’s original version of ‘STAY’ embody his charm and style, and are reinterpreted by the next two musicians.
Befitting the leisurely ambience of the afternoon is the second ‘STAY’, reinterpreted into a sophisticated classic version. A classic idol boasting handsome features, brilliant career, and exquisite performance skills, Ji-Yong is also a pianist for the ensemble DITTO. The young and talented pianist delivers an elegant melody and serene ambience with the second version of ‘STAY’.
Reflecting the charm and excitement of the evening, the third version of ‘STAY’ is performed by Jin By Jin in a House Remix style. Selected as top 10 in the instrumental category in the 2005 U.S.A Songwriting competition, a winner in the category of electronic in the Song of the Year songwriting competition in 2007, and a remixer for Ahn Trio’s album, Jin By Jin is a musician already gaining international fame. Utilizing his beat and rhythm, he delivers a sensuous remix version of ‘STAY’ that is most befitting for the lounge.
