Chie Tsang Lee

  • Composer

Chie Tsang Lee is a Malaysian composer who is greatly influenced by his cultural/educational background. His current work is concerned with exploring and re-framing interdisciplinary perspectives related to hybrid oral traditions found in East Malaysia to provoke new possibilities for sounds, spaces and creativity in his compositional work. His music evokes the notion of energy as flowing movement and significant colour bringing together Asian performance aesthetics, western contemporary classical approaches as well as aspects of indigenous East-Malaysian (Kadazandusun) ritual forms. He is currently a full-time student supported by UMS and the Malaysian government studying for a PhD in music composition supervised by Professor Liza Lim and Professor Aaron Cassidy.
