Ellen Fullman is an artist of great patience and exploration whose ‘long string instrument’ stretches across a giant 26 metres, while Okkyung Lee’s approach to her instrument is often one of gnarled combat, shaping a new language for the cello. Together on this live document - recorded in Stockholm at The First Edition Festival for Other Music on 20 February 2016 - the pair are part of a truly symbiotic relationship.
Okkyung Lee & Christian Marclay
One-woman improvisational cello-storm Okkyung Lee played live with turntablist and artist Christian Marclay during a Cafe Oto residency a few years ago: the performance is now being released by Northern Spy. Amalgam is a jumpy, flickery set of sound-shards bounced back and forth between the two musicians: high-grade improv from an unusual pairing of instruments.
More explosive sonic encounters recorded at London’s home of experimental music, Cafe Oto. Guitarists Bill Orcutt (formerly of Harry Pussy) met phenomenal cellist Okkyung Lee last year for a first-time improvised collaboration documented in full here. Both musicians approach their instruments with fierce originality, and the new territories they find grind together wonderfully here. 500 copies on Oto’s own Otoroku label.
This recording on London-based improvisation label Fataka pairs up two of the most engaging string-bowers in the game: John Edwards with his double bass and Okkyung Lee with her cello. White Cable, Black Wires is a feast of scratching, plucking, creaking, buzzing energy that feels intensely physical. Edition of 500 CDs.

Phil Minton & Okkyung Lee
Truly incredible improvising cellist Okkyung Lee combines with long-term vocal skronker Phil Minton for Annicca, their first meeting. Both have the amazing skill to make their chosen instruments sound like something completely different, so all bets are off in terms of who is making what noises. The intense sound of thoughtful improvisation.
