Okkyung Lee, a New York based artist and South Korea native, has created a body of work blurring genre boundaries through collaborations and compositions while pushing the limitation of contemporary cello performance techniques. Her music draws from noise and extended techniques, jazz, Western classical, and Korean traditional and popular music. Since moving to New York in 2000, Okkyung’s unique approach to her instrument and improvisation has led to collaborations with numerous artists from wildly varied ranges such as Laurie Anderson, David Behrman, John Butcher, Chris Corsano, Mark Fell and many, many more. This combination of stupendous skill and cross-genre curiosity – of edge and range – made the invitation of Okkyung Lee to Intonal natural.
