Though Okkyung Lee calls New York home, the cellist and composer is rarely home these days. This year alone, she’s toured Australia, played festivals in Russia and Norway, and spent time in Stuttgart for a residency at the Akademie Schloss Solitude. This week she’ll join brusque doom rockers Swans on their final West Coast tour, serving as their opening act and sitting in with the band each night.
