Remote Together is a musical exploration of metamorphosis. Considered a “new breed of instrumental specialist,” (New Music Buff) Lee offers “immaculate, masterful oboe playing” (The Double Reed) in combination with inspired and discerning musicality across an impressive range of genres and styles. Her “deep understanding of the expressive possibilities of her instruments in both traditional and extended techniques” (New Music Buff) leads to the flow of “fresh, unencumbered musical ideas” (The Double Reed) that characterizes her performance. A follow-up to her highly acclaimed solo album, social sounds, “a CD as compelling as it is eminently listenable,” (The WholeNote) Remote Together takes the listener on a compelling, evolutionary journey, responsive to pandemic culture. Beautifully cathartic, explorative, and timely, the album offers a wide variety of unexpected sonic appeal; the pieces thoughtfully integrate the oboe, oboe d’amore, and English horn with field recordings, manipulated sounds, and electronics, all the while featuring Lee’s “ravishing [performance, and] absolute control over her instrument.” (Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review)
