About Okkyung Lee

Korean native Okkyung Lee began her career as an experimental cellist with classical training, eventually expanding into fields of improvisation, noise, jazz, and extended technique. Lee collaborated with many of the bigger names in the noise and experimental improvisation scenes, including performances and recording dates with standout artists like Nels Cline, Ikue Mori, Evan Parker, Thurston Moore, Laurie Anderson, and John Zorn. Apart from multiple collaborations, Lee has worked on her own music, releasing solo albums such as I Saw the Ghost of an Unknown Soul and It Said in 2008, Noisy Love Songs in 2010, and the chaotic Ghil in 2013. ~ Fred Thomas
