Fermanta: Pause is an art project created with the lead of Art Director Daehyung Lee in collaboration with artists from various fields and SBS D Forum(hereinafter referred to as SDF).

The project derived from contemplating on means for survival and ways to sort chaos within the dire and unfortunate world caused by COVID through the imagination of free-thinking artists. When everyone is on the run towards the same direction and in equal speed, ‘Fermata’- parallel to slowing or pausing of the beat in the middle or at the end of the song to transform its overall musical expression-signals one to pause and take a breath to ruminate on what we are lacking as society. Like so, SDF and the Fermata art project provides opportunities for imagination and reflection upon society through the medium of "sound."
