Associate Artists

Peter & Corine Lee

New ARTiculate Associates Wilderness are/is the musical brainchild of accomplished composers, musicians and educators, Peter and Corine Lee. 

The duo’s original music reflects their passion for wildlife and the environment; and they produce their own work as The Ecomods and Wilderness out of a purpose-built 24 track studio in North Cornwall. 

Their experience is hugely diverse: they’ve composed BBC soundtracks,  worked with Cornwall Youth Jazz Orchestra, re-mixed their work for David Arnold in Ibiza, and appeared at numerous festivals, fundraisers & gigs across the SW.   
From their studio they also support young and emerging artists to record and produce their own music. 
The duo are co-developing some exciting new musical strands of work with ARTiculate and we are delighted to welcome them to our Associate Artist team!
