Mongsang on Classwar Karaoke 0022 Survey

mongsang

Mongsang is a new track composed with Una. For this particular piece we used field recordings, piano, percussion, and a tibetan bowl. Mongsang means daydream in Korean, which is appropriate I think. Thanks to Classwar for another amazing survey!

Lynlee Beauty was Everwhere (excerpt)

 

Here is an excerpt from Lynlee’s Beauty was Everywhere, which was featured in Sound Interpretations  dedication to Virginia Woolf. To quote Una Lee, “Soothing field recording and awakening text are merged together in one to express the deepest admiration towards Virginia Woolf.” Enjoy!

Lynlee’s Beauty was Everywhere on Haze’s recent Sound Interpretation Series: Virginia Woolf

Lynlee has contributed a new track entitled Beauty was Everywhere for Haze’s Sound Interpretation series dedicated to Virginia Woolf. This track consists of field recordings and a superb, rich reading by Una herself . Both of us are great admires of Woolf, so hopefully the track will inspire a few new readers to seek Woolf out, or motivate some old readers to dust off their copies of Mrs Dalloway . Here is a link to the Haze compilation. More Lynlee soon.

Lynlee on Haze’s latest Sound Interpretation Series: Jack Kerouac

cover-2

Lynlee  composed a track specifically for Haze’s latest Sound Interpretation series dedicated to Jack Kerouac. The track entitled “A Taste of Rainy Dawn” has Una and me reading Kerouac’s haikus in English and Korean with additional field recordings and soundscapes. The piece was really a pleasure to make and we hope it captures a certain feeling in the haikus. To listen or download go here.   Lots of great things to discover. More from Lynlee soon.

From the Haze net label:

Una Lee’s Grainy Thoughts CDR

cover

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.
