Okkyung Lee

Few performers better embody the many and diverse influences that have enriched contemporary music in the early 21st century than South Korean cellist, improvisor and composer Okkyung Lee. Her work unites East and West, composed and improvised, acoustic and electronic, delicate and noisy.

Transit opens with the premiere of a large-scale new work composed with and for the Explore Ensemble, with Lee herself as the soloist.

Coproduction Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Explore Ensemble as part of Sounds Now 

Fri 18 Oct · 20:30

Okkyung Lee

Okkyung Lee is a South-Korean cellist, composer, and improviser who moves freely between artistic disciples and contingencies. She has taken a broad array of inspirations (including noise, improvisation, jazz, western classical, and her homeland's traditional and popular music) and used them to forge a highly distinctive approach. Lee has worked in disparate contexts as a solo artist and as collaborator.

Okkyung Lee unites East and West, composed and improvised, acoustic and electronic, delicate and noisy.
