Okkyung Lee is a cellist, composer and improviser who moves freely between artistic disciplines and contingencies. Since moving to New York in 2000, she has worked in disparate contexts as a solo artist and collaborator with creators in a wide range of disciplines. A native of South Korea, Lee has taken inspiration from noise, improvisation, jazz, western classical and the traditional and popular music of her homeland, and used them to forge a highly distinctive approach. Her curiosity and a determined sense of exploration guide the work she has made in disparate contexts.
