COMPOSITION FOR VISUAL MEDIA
COMPOSER, DRAMATIST, EMPATHIST...
"Finding the intrinsic link between moving image and sound is not a task fulfilled bysomeone solely with an understanding of music, it is a process realized by catalytically channeling emotion through the senses of empathy into an expression of sound; my role is not merely that of a songwriter, I am a dramatist, an empathist"
By fusing his knowledge and experience of orchestral composition, electronic manipulation and audio synthesis, Lee challenges himself to create music that emotes and moves people and is fascinated with exploring the ever-changing relationship between sound and image.
It has been quoted many times that music and sound is 50% of a film and with this in mind Lee places high importance on establishing a clear dialogue with the director in order to satisfy the creative intent of his/her vision whilst capturing the on-screen drama in musical form and also presenting a piece of music that can stand alone with credibility and originality.
