Lesley Mok

Tuesday, March 22, 2022. 8:00 pm

Commissioned artist Lesley Mok returns to Roulette with the world premiere of new work for ensemble.

Lesley Mok is a drummer, composer, and improviser who continually finds herself among Brooklyn’s most respected musicians and experimentalists. Interested in the ways social conditions shape our beings, Lesley’s work focuses on transposing, augmenting, and overacting humanness to explore ideas about normalcy, alienness, and privilege. Working with artists including Cory Smythe, Tomeka Reid, Immanuel Wilkins, and Adam O’Farrill, Lesley has honed a unique voice as a drummer and percussionist by employing a dynamic range of timbres and orchestrations. Lesley is an alumni of the Berklee Global Jazz Institute and the Banff Workshop for Jazz & Creative Music. In 2020, Lesley participated as a Fellow at the New Amsterdam Genre-Fluid Composers Lab and as a member of Mutual Mentorship for Musicians, a collaborative program for womxn artists created by Jen Shyu and Sara Serpa. She has been mentored by Vijay Iyer, Tyshawn Sorey, Henry Threadgill, Billy Hart, Danilo Perez, and Terri Lyne Carrington.
