Joungmin Lee (b.1975) is a Korean composer, choral conductor and digital music artist who is interested in acoustic and electronic music with an interdisciplinary approach. Lee’s music is an attempt to find innovative sound both in instrumental and digital worlds. This can be released with several means including spectral techniques, computer music and the combination of these trends. And he is always looking for his stage to be formed. It will be where he will augment the potential of each instrument on-stage and harmonize the uniqueness of each to create progressive and futuristic sound. Also, Lee is seeking a unified combination of the cacophony and desultoriness of sound--or ways to create different timbres with the same instruments widely employed by other performers and composers. His music has been performed in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia. He is a Gold & Silver Medal-winning composer of Global Music Awards for his string quartet ‘Vexatious’ and electroacoustic piece ‘Heterogeneous’. More than 33,000 people from all genres, including classical, pop, rock, jazz, country, etc., had applied to this award for each time from all over the world. They have been published by Echofluxx 17 and ABLAZE Records on Hong Kong New Music Ensemble Live from Prague Vol. 1, 31st volume of the SCI CD Series, and Electronic Masters Vol. 5 disc by ABLAZE Records which includes his award-winning work. Also, his other electroacoustic piece ‘3 Sounds’ will be released by ABLAZE Records on Electronic Masters Vol. 7 disc as well in late this year.
