The fabulous voice of Soprano singer Peyee Chen was enjoyed by the audience who watched her perform at the premiere of Gavin Bryars self portrait ‘Lauda 48′ on the 2nd November 2019. Lauda 48′ was composed by Gavin for 108’s ‘Artists’ Self Portraits’ exhibition.

An omnivore when it comes to performing, Peyee Chen enjoys singing Monteverdi with lute and bass as much as singing Bernhard Lang with full electronic accompaniment.
Peyee is a keen exponent of vocal improvisation and performance art, and most recently performed in Martin Creeds’s exhibition at Hauser & Wirth, London, where she sang music by Martin for 30 minutes every hour for eight hours, three days a week for six weeks. Inspired by challenges, she has performed with poet Caroline Bergvall, on her Raga Dawn series; outdoors and starting at sunrise, with locations including the Isle of Skye, Tilbury docks. and the rooftops of the Red Cross Museum, Geneva.

She has performed at Berliner Philhrmonie, BBC Proms and the Aldeburgh Festival, with conductors such as Ingo Metzmacher, Simon Rattle and Francois-Xavier Roth. A former MA graduate at the University of York, Peyee currently lives in England.
