Milky Way or Galaxy are translations of the traditional Korean word that is also the first name of flutist Meerenai Shim. Pronounced “me-ren-ay,” the unusual name befits this unique performer and teacher.
Straddling the classical, pop, and experimental worlds, Meerenai has made a niche for herself as a unique music curator and performer. She has premiered and commissioned numerous works on her own and as part of the A/B Duo (with percussionist Chris Jones). She has released two compact discs on her own label in 2013 (The Art of Noise) and 2011 (Sometimes the City is Silent) which include works by Daniel Felsenfeld, Janice Misurell-Mitchell and Ian Clarke.
