Siren, a sonic art masterpiece by Ray Lee, artist, composer, performer and lecturer


Research-informed sound sculpture practice demonstrates cultural life, public discourse and economic benefits that can be evidenced by the highly successful ‘Siren’ by current British Composer of the year for Sonic Art Ray Lee. Following its initial performance in 2004, since 2008 ‘Siren’ has been performed more than 120 times across the world at key venues such as Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis, USA and the Melbourne International Arts Festival that collectively generated £124,051 in fee income. The work has left a significant record of its presence through social and new media, but also continues to develop and demonstrate further impacts through a new piece by Ray Lee ‘Chorus’.
