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, She has released more than 20 albums including the latest solo record Ghil produced by Lasse Marhaug on EditionsMego/Ideologic Organ, Noisy Love Songs (for George Dyer) on Tzadik. She has performed and recorded with numerous artists from wide ranges such as Laurie Anderson, David Behrman, Michelle Boulé, Mark Fell, Douglas Gordon, Jenny Hval, Vijay Iyer, Andrew Lampert, Christian Marclay, Stephen O'Malley, Evan Parker, Wadada Leo Smith, C Spencer Yeh and John Zorn to name just a few.
