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.
