OKKYUNG LEE, LE QUAN NINH
Austria 2013 [no label, 2CD]

Music Unlimited 27. Okkyung Lee - Minoriten, Wels, Austria; November 9, 2013. Le Quan Ninh - Minoriten, Wels, Austria; November 10, 2013. Okkyung Lee, Lindha Kallerdahl, Paul Lovens - Alter Schl8hof, Wels, Austria; November 10, 2013. Very good audience recordings.

Perhaps the most recognisable name at this year’s Music Unlimited 27, the experimental music festival in Austria from November 8-10, is Kim Gordon, formerly of Sonic Youth. At this festival, she is appearing as part of Body/Head with Bill Nace featuring Ikue Mori.

Here then are three shows from the festival, two of which feature Okkyung Lee; and one featuring French-Vietnamese percussionist Le Quan Ninh.

A native of [South] Korea, Okkyung Lee has been developing her own voice in a contemporary cello performance, improvisation and composition. With her solid classical training as a foundation, she incorporates jazz, sounds, Korean traditional music, and noise with extended techniques to create her unique blend of music. Since moving to New York in 2000, she has performed and recorded with numerous artists such as Laurie Anderson, Carla Bozulich, Nels Cline, Thurston Moore, Ikue Mori, Evan Parker, Wadada Leo Smith and John Zorn, to name a few. - okkyung.wordpress:

As a classical trained percussionist, Le Quan Ninh worked with contemporary music ensembles and was a founder member of Quatuor Helios (1986-2012), a percussion quartet that performed and recorded, among others, John Cage’s percussion works. Their last creation was Seul a Seuls by Georges Aperghis premiered in late 2006 at the Musica Festival in Strasbourg (France). - lequanninh.net

  3. Western Bias rears its ugly head!

  4. How about you like your music and other people will like theirs. It’s called live and let live. Try it and you might not be so lowend.

  5. Hoping that everyone knows the above self-revealing shit-for-brains has lamely appropriated my Big-O name in face of the unbearably cruel and overwhelmingly impossible task of coming up with his own. Sigh… life IS hard.

  6. And to madbad.. & Shel… you are exactly right.

  7. I’m a fan of some avant-garde music, but this sounds like some people are moving furniture.

    By Paul on Nov 16, 2013

  8. ONE PERSON DECRIES THIS AND THE RESULT IS A ANTI WESTERN SLAG. NOT FAIR, EVEN THOUGH I TEND TO AGREE WITH PAUL THAT THIS DOES INDEED SOUND LIKE MOVING FURNITURE.
    THEN AGAIN I LIKE SUN RA AND MOONDOG SO TO EACH HIS OR HER OWN

  10. moondog wow, didn`t think anyone else ever listened to the man.

  14. Unfortunately, “what a load of shit” is not constructive criticism. I will admit that this type of music is not for everybody. But for those, like myself, who enjoy (and also perform) improvised music like this, this is a fantastic recording by some of the better known names in the genre. You really have to see Ninh to understand what’s going on. He’s amazing in how he can get so many sounds out of so few percussion pieces.

    Rather than just decreeing this is “shit,” why not give concrete reasons why you don’t like it, or better yet, ask questions so you can become better informed. I don’t like opera at all, but I would never post a negative comment on an opera download, I would instead just move on.

    Then again, trolls just gotta troll…

    BTW, thanks Big-O for posting this!

    Video of Ninh’s performance. All the other festival performances are documented by the same poster, wotan667.

    Enjoy, or not…
