Ingrid Lee is a composer, improviser, and pianist from Hong Kong. She graduated from the California Institute of the Arts with a B.F.A. in music composition and piano performance where her primary teachers included Michael Pisaro, Wadada Leo Smith, Karen Tanaka, Michael Jon Fink, Danny Holt, and Vicki Ray. Lee's work is influenced by the sounds of failure in technology and is mostly written for piano, electronics, and mixed ensembles. She has collaborated with film makers, animators, dancers, and visual artists on projects that have been performed/screened in Hong Kong, Los Angeles, New York, and Essen, Germany. Her latest projects include a recital of machine music titled "WE ARE BECOME HUMAN", and a vinyl/publication titled "COME ON YOU FUCKERS", a solo piano transcription of a guitar smashing made in collaboration with artist Rowan Smith.
