Okkyung Lee Shredding (Literally) on the Cello

…and the “this is either definitely your thing or definitely not your thing” category is back with a vengeance. Okkyung Lee is a Korean cellist whose style “incorporates jazz, sounds, korean traditional music, and noise with extended techniques.” This set of live solos recorded in London probably best emphasize the “noise” and “extended techniques” portion of that background. This clip in particular is unapologetically experimental and non-melodic, so either be warned (or get excited) in advance. For more of her music, check out some audio/video recordings (and extensive collaborations!) on her website.
