then, there, that corner…

sylvie courvoisier – piano
cornelius dufallo – violin
alex waterman – cello
trevor dunn – bass
peter evans – trumpets
ned rothenberg – bass clarinet
david shively – percussion
satoshi takeishi – percussion/electronics
dj olive – turntables

inspired by rain, empty streets, 2 (korean) dead singers, memory, dawn, duke
jordan, home and goodbyes… and everything between now and memories that
can translate into sounds…

A native of Korea, Okkyung Lee has been developing her own voice in
contemporary cello performance, improvisation and composition. Using her
solid classical training as a springboard, she incorporates jazz, sounds,
korean traditional music, and noise with extended techniques to create her
unique blend of music.

Okkyung has released her debut album, Nihm on Tzadik; a duo recording with
Christian Marclay on My Cat is an Alien label’s split LP series; and a solo
cello album I saw the Ghost of an Unknown Soul and it Said… to be
released on Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace label in 2007.
