Projects / Composition for Seven Pianos

Composition for Seven Pianos by Khan Lee


Composition for Seven Pianos
Situated in downtown Vancouver, Composition for Seven Pianos will invite passers-by to both participate and witness an ever-changing time-based acoustic pattern layered on top of a static circular composition made by the arrangement of seven pianos. In collaboration with composer Robyn Jacob.

Khan Lee was born in Seoul, Korea. He studied architecture at Hong-Ik University, before immigrating to Canada to study fine art at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Through sculptural and media practices, his work attempts to exhibit results of experimentation with form and process in order to express inherent relationships between material and immaterial content. He is a founding member of the Vancouver-based artist collective Intermission and is presently a member of the Instant Coffee artist collective. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Lee lives and works in Vancouver, BC.


Ten Different Things  engages ten critically-engaged artists to investigate the role of culture as a critical ingredient in the construct and vitality of the contemporary city. What propositions, provocations, concepts or visions do artists have for creating a public sphere that promotes cultural life? How can we create structures, processes or dynamics to produce new ways of living, working, interacting, or occupying the city? Where are the intersections in public life where artists can produce alternate outcomes?

Curated by Kate Armstrong, the series is a collaboration between the City of Vancouver Public Art ProgramCityStudio Vancouver, and Living Labs at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
