I am very excited to report Lynlee have published two new tracks with more material on the way. Stream and download (name your price) on our Bandcamp page. Enjoy
Details are below:
Back in the end of February 2020, after 2 years of an incidental hiatus, we had decided to pick up where we left off and re-embark on our collaborative journey. We had started exchanging videos and audios and creating compositions again when Covid-19 was declared a pandemic and lockdowns in global scale began to be imposed in country after country.
The release of this ‘single’ marks the time of a ‘changeover’ for us – we took an organically emerged break from a consistent collaboration, and now we are in a collective state of awaiting an altered lifestyle to manifest. More and more art practices are moving towards existing online, and even music ensembles perform ‘together’ via virtual means. What we as Lynlee might do is keep on doing what we’ve been doing in the past 7 years: collect, exchange and amalgamate words, images and sounds between two different continents with the hope of exploring and cultivating our artistic practice.
Here is Vol.1 of my Early Morning Rockville Recordings.
All of the sounds were recorded in the music lab on the Rockville campus in Maryland during the winter and spring of 2015. Most of the tracks were improvised with a few slight embellishments.
Here is a sample of the latest Lynlee track. This one is for Haze’s excellent Sound Interpretation series dedicated to Samuel Beckett. The text is taken from Beckett’s Waiting for Godot . To download or listen to the track in its entirety go here.
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!
