Jonathan Lee is an audio / visual collagist based in Richmond VA. His recordings, performances, and installations as Anduin are narrative experiences informed by dream states and infused with everyday sounds. As Textura Magazine (CA) wrote, “One of the things that most distinguishes Jonathan Lee's Anduin work is his uncanny ability to take a number of real-world samples and thread them into a composition in such a way that these mundane sounds are transformed into something much more arresting.” Since 2008, Lee has released five critically acclaimed albums and a half dozen EPs. His music has been used in films, dance pieces, and art instillations in the US, UK, Belgium, and Finland. He’s also collaborated with a number of other artists including Stephen Vitiello, Erik K Skodvin, Dag Rosenqvist, Carl Ritger, Noah Saval, Jimmy Ghaphery, Stefan Nemeth, John Twells, Graham Scala, and Gareth Davis. Anduin’s newest record is out January 23, 2015 on Paul McDevitt’s Berlin based Infinite Greyscale imprint.
