Intertwining delicate modern classical compositions with avant-garde improvisation. 

Composer and musician Okkyung Lee is releasing a new album, called Yeo​-​Neun, via Shelter Press this May.

The album was recorded with the Yeo-Neun Quartet led by Lee, and features Maeve Gilchrist on harp, Jacob Sacks on piano, and Eivynd Opsvik on bass.

Yeo​-​Neun is adorned with work from American photographer Ron Jude’s Other Nature series (1997-2007), which documents the  urbanization of pastoral landscapes.
