Simon Barker is an Australian jazz drummer who is known for his unique rhythmic style and his ability to explore a broad variety of sounds with a small drum kit. Barker has said that creative sustainability is a major part of his outlook, and he gained a new perspective on this notion when he first encountered the performances of Kim Seok-Chul. Kim is a shaman from South Korea who uses percussion music as a means of expression; impressed both by the shaman's remarkable talents and his ability to perform for hours at a stretch, Barker sought Kim out to study with him. Barker learned a great deal more than just drumming technique from Kim, and his visits to South Korea became part of a voyage of self-discovery on a number of levels. Musician and filmmaker Emma Franz joined Barker for some of last visits with Kim, and Intangible Asset No. 82 is a travelogue of the Australian's creative, philosophical, and spiritual journey. Intangible Asset Number 82 was an official selection at the 2009 South by Southwest Film Festival.
