Born in Tel Aviv, Israel, Lee Gilboa has found her love for composition and Jazz at a young age.
While at Berklee College of Music where she was mentored by Neil Leonard, Dr. Richard Boulanger and Dr. Jeff Baust, Gilboa got to perform and collaborate with a wide variety of musicians, artists and technologists such as Dr. Rui Penha, Robert Rich, Amnon Wolman and Terence Blanchard.
Between 2017-19 Lee lived in New York and attended Columbia University's MFA Sound Art program, and worked closely with Seth Cluett and Nikolas Kakkoufa.
While in New York, Lee was active as a FOH and recording engineer. She was trained in the internship program at Roulette Intermedium and has since worked as an assistant and lead engineer at venues such as Experimental Intermedia and the DiMenna Center, with Talea Ensemble, Yarn/Wire and Tilt Brass among others.
During this time she began co-curating CT::SWaM's ExChange series at Fridman gallery with Daniel Neumann, and developed a series of pieces that will be presented as a debut album on Contour Editions this coming June.
Lee's work has been presented in venues such as Berklee Performance Center, Fridman Gallery, Qubit Gallery, The Cube at Virginia Tech and Resonance FM Radio to name a few.
In the fall of 2019, she will begin her studies at Brown University’s Music and Multimedia Composition Ph.D program.
