Okkyung Lee

Wednesday, September 15, 2004. 8:30 pm

with Heather Kravas, Andrew Lampert and Dion Workman. The magnetic unchartable and all-embracing world of cellist Okkyung Lee culminates in this night of collaborative performance (art), installation and cross-media with cello as a unifying element. Featuring the intense and fearless performer and choreographer Heather Kravas (NoNo Twins, Fennifer Allen, DD Dorvillier); the filmmaker and inexhaustible servant to the medium Andrew Lampert (archivist and programmer at Anthology Film Archives) who has recently been making multiple projector pieces; and extreme electronic music composer/ improviser Dion Workman (hear his CD Ching on Antiopic).

 

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.
