Making Tracks 2020

Lemon Guo is a vocalist, composer, and interdisciplinary sound artist from China. Focused on the power and subtleties of the human voice, she creates performances and installations that connect people to current environmental and cultural realities. Juxtaposing traditional styles of singing with field recordings and electronics, Lemon’s music mirrors her hybrid backgrounds. Born in a coastal city in southeast China, Lemon grew up as a self-proclaimed 'science nerd', singing Chinese folk music. She moved to the US aged 18 and in recent years has spent time recording whales in Alaska and learning ancient village tunes from the Kam song masters in southwest China.
