A highy eclectic composer, Kangsu Lee is interested in blending two different styles of music -- orchestral and electronic. Mr. Lee's much-admired score for film ""Reaching For the Stars"" has been peer-chosen to be among Unique Soundtracks Top Ten, and also the Broadjam's New York Top Ten. In addition,""Fantasia"" has landed in Broadjam's Fan Picks Top Ten (all in 2005). Earleir, he participated in an ASCAP film-scoring workshop, held at New York University in memory of Buddy Baker (2002).
In recent years he has been specializing in film scoring and pop-style compositions. Though his
music is non-derivitive, he does recognize his intellectual debt to other composers, and is interested in blending their different styles and thereby creating novel textures.
After coming to the United States in 1994, Lee earned an bachelor's degree at the State University of New York / Purchase, with a major in studio composition. He also holds a
masters degree in music technology (film scoring) from New York University. Inasmuch as MIDI orchestration was the subject of his master's thesis, this methodology has been his primary vehicle for experimenting and producing film scores. His other film scoring involve a variety of styles, including slow-pop ballad, Korean folk music, and electronic dance. He also has considerable experience conducting choirs.
Kangsu Lee 李康壽 grew up in Seoul, Korea, where he
participated in the production of gospel and pop music as a composer, arranger, and performer (piano and keyboard). He now divides his time between New York, Seoul, and Hong Kong.
Currently Lee is working on compositions in a minimalist vein. This involves focusing on the core essentials of the music, shorn of fringe and fluff.
