Lee has worked on many different, varied, unusual and exciting projects through the years.
These have taken the forms of performance, installation, film, music and more.
Rather than list them all here in some encyclopaedic way it has been decided to share a few pieces of documentation below to give a ‘feel’ or ‘overview’ of some of what has been done.
Collaborators are key to Lees work and are far to many to acknowledge here.
A more extensive biog/CV is available on request.
A performance (with long term collaborators The Arbonauts) in a tidal swimming pool on the Thames estuary – A part of the Estuary festival
Lee recorded sounds all along the Thames estuary (above water, below water, on water – everywhere) and then used these sounds to compose a surround sound score for the performance which he ran live using a bespoke 8 way soundsystem.
Nightsight was commisioned by The Arts council England and Forestors Forest and took place in an ancient Ochre and Iron mine deep in the Forest of Dean.
The project investigated the colonies of rare bats that live in the cave network and left a legacy of sonic installations in situ including a bespoke bass pipe speaker that I built and flew from the ceiling of the main cavern – this pipe is cut to reproduce the caves standing soundwaves and produces hot and cold nodes of sound throughout the central cave area.
We also made a (huge) walkthrough performance (with Inner Ear performance collective) and ran workshops for school, disabled and visually impared children.
THE SONIC ANOMALY SIDESHOW
Different versions of this installation were commissioned and took place at different venues/art festivals in the UK including B-Side festival on the Island of Portland and Viewpoints at Teeside.
The installation used standing waves (sound waves tuned to the physical space in which they were installed), sound mirrors (large parabolic mirrors that can be used to reflect sound), radio transmitter technology theramin devices and huge bodies of locally recorded sound
