Aimée Lê is a poet and artist of Vietnamese and American descent. She is a PhD candidate at Royal Holloway, University of London, in their practice-based programme.
Aimée has been working on several different strands of music & performance. She was involved in hip-hop workshops in Chicago & produced her own songs using loops and diegetic sounds. She also co-leads an experimental songwriting workshop. Most of Aimée’s poetry involves live performance and vernacular language. Her current poetry project uses tape recordings to document family narratives from the Vietnam War. However, the technology she has used so far has been very bootleg (electric banjo made of coffee cans, recordings on her cell phone, etc.), and she is hoping to branch into engineering, building & programming sound equipment herself. All kinds of D-I-Y advice welcome!
