Okkyung Lee The Swan: Replay in Polyester
Lee has been developing her own voice in contemporary cello performance, improvisation and composition for more than a decade by blending her wide interests and influences. The Swan Replay in Polyester is a multi-channel sound performance combining the cello and cassette tapes. Remembering her early years practicing, The Swan, by Camille Saint-Saens, and her impression of the radical performance, Variations on a Theme by Saint-Saens, by Charlotte Moorman and Paik, Lee renders a new interpretation of the classical cello piece in a way that raises a question about the beauty intrinsic to music.
