Okkyung Lee

(Korea/USA), cello

Cellist Okkyung Lee is one of the most dynamic forces in improvised music today, a fearless and powerful performer whose playing incorporates a love of noise, extended technique and elements from the outer fringes of contemporary composition, together with a sensitive ear and a sense of suspense worthy of Bernard Hermann.

After being in music schools from age of 3 to 25, Korean cellist/improviser/composer Okkyung Lee finally found her artistic freedom in New York's lower east side where she moved in 2000.

Since this auspicious move, she has recorded for Tzadik, performed with Derek Bailey, John Zorn, Laurie Anderson, John Butcher and literally hundreds of absolutely brilliant creative musicians. We look forward to joining the throng.

First coming to the attention of the west via Damon & Naomi's Internation Sad Hits compilation, Kim Doo Soo has been active since the 80s.
