A native of Seoul, Korea, the pianist Lisa Ullén grew up in the northern part of Sweden, and is based in Stockholm. A versatile player with a singular musical vision, Ullén has repeatedly proven her ability to imprint her absolute sense for tonal texture on whatever musical context she appears in. Besides working as a soloist and leader of her own groups, Ullén has collaborated extensively with many well-known Swedish artists and dancers, and has also scored several dramatic productions. She's also performed and recorded music by contemporary composers.
“Extraordinary is all I can say as I dive in to her unique approach. /…/Amazing piano, some of it prepared, which should appeals to fans of John Cage as well as of Cecil Taylor.” – Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
