A lovely swim on Monday after the snow.
When I first heard Una Lee’s disc Grainy Thoughts I was immediately captivated by its diversity and mystery. Lee manages to incorporate an eclectic use of sounds to create something innovative and quite compelling. This is no easy task. Styles range from experimental field recordings, sound art, noise, and improv piano compositions-each track is rendered with imagination and skill.
From the haunting drones of “A Quiet Rumble” to the delicate, intricate rhythms of “A Rolling Mind” or to the reflective, nostalgic beauty of “A weary conversation” the listener is free to engage and explore.
The disc is now available on Una Lee’s bandcamp page with additional tracks and her own handmade paper case. Like the music, the handmade case is beautiful and displayed with authenticity and care. This is a stunning debut! I look forward to hearing more great things from this South Korean Artist.

Una Lee : Field Recording
Chris Lynn: Soundscapes
Lynlee is a very exciting collaborative adventure that I am undertaking with sound artist Una Lee. As a duo, we plan to share our ideas, field recordings, remixes and visuals to create works we both find satisfying and new. We are in the early stages, but we already have produced a number of tracks and a short film. We will be posting our compositions on the Lynlee soundcloud page which is located below. Expect more details as the project develops, but for now-have a listen!
I am very pleased to present the first Audio Visual collaboration with South Korean sound artist Una Lee. The track “A Rolling Mind“ appears on Una Lee’s excellent disc Grainy Thought, which was released earlier this year. More on this ongoing collaboration soon-Enjoy
