*tickets for Michael Francis Duch’s concert included.

Cellist and composer Okkyung Lee’s performances possess a visceral energy and consistently defy definition. Transgressing boundaries between new music, improvisation and noise, she has crafted a sonic space that is at once compelling and confronting.

In January 2016 the New York Times wrote, “What Okkyung Lee does on the cello is often called “extended technique,” which means producing sounds by unusual means. But she more or less obliterates the need for the term. When she keeps her fingers choked up on the neck, pointing downward near the bridge, or rubs her bow against the strings to make sluicing sounds and hard, guttural rips, this is her standard; this is her usual. It’s part of her language.”

Always unpredictable, for Borealis she will occupy the space of Tårnsalen building a performance that draws from the physical environment around her.
