Lynlee is a collaborative creative team of two sound artists, Chris H. Lynn and Una Lee. Both mainly work with field recording as material for their compositions. Their collaboration consists of exchange of recordings, making re-mix tracks with each other's work, and also audio visual creations. Here on the joint page, the on-going works and results of their collaboration will be posted.

the changeover (2020)
The release of this 'single' marks the time of a 'changeover' for us - we took an organically emerged break from a consistent collaboration, and now we are in a collective state of awaiting an altered lifestyle to manifest. More and more art practices are moving towards existing online, and even music ensembles perform 'together' via virtual means. What we as Lynlee might do is keep on doing what we've been doing in the past 7 years: collect, exchange and amalgamate words, images and sounds between two different continents with the hope of exploring and cultivating our artistic practice.

'Words in the Winds: Sounds'
in collaboration with Chris Lynn (2017)
'Words in the Winds : Sounds' is the new collaborative series by Chris Lynn and Una Lee. The project rose from recognising that we as field recordists often try our best to disguise our presence within the sound recordings despite the fact that their mere existence implies the involvement of human activity. As a result, we started to mark our presence through reciting our original haikus and poems, whilst making the field recordings, the content of which were based on or inspired by our sonic surroundings.
