Composer and food writer, Mee, designs experiences that bridge the gap between our outer world and our inner life.
Mee composes and conducts large-scale music, including two feature film soundtracks. She has arranged orchestral strings, toured and/or recorded with Smashing Pumpkins, Tiesto, Psychic TV, and Christina Perri. Her food writing has been published by HarperCollins and Rizzoli, and The Los Angeles Times food section. She designed edible gardens for William Shatner and Patrick Dempsey, and cooked for Joshua Bell.
Mee integrates this unique wealth of experiences to create Yntegrity.
She draws on crossmodality, a new area of scientific research which explores how our senses interrelate to create a unified experience, and she is a member of XM.
In addition to her knowledge of music and food, she brings her fascination with the oceans and astronomy, from the heavens to the deep, as well as the unconventional, alchemical, ancient and modern perspectives, and pandrogynous liminal horizons where anything is possible.
How Mee's music and food careers combined, creating Yntegrity
Yntegrity has its roots in Mee's dual music and food careers, reaching back to the late 80s, coming together in 2013, with the launch of The Mermaid Song.
The Mermaid Song was a music, film, and beauty collaboration for the oceans, featuring a limited edition bath ballistic from Lush Cosmetics, containing edible seaweed and pink salt.
We hear, see, feel and smell Mee's orchestral music and the film she directed, with the bath ballistic created in response to her song. The project raised $48,000 for Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and garnered a full-page feature in The Los Angeles Times.
Next, Mee began conversations with NYU neuroscientist, Professor Denis Pelli, who researches beauty and perception, and British multi-sensory designer, Steph Singer, who Mee worked with at BAM. In 2016, Nokia Bell Labs said Mee is "channeling the spirit of Robert Rauschenberg"
Yntegrity : Happiness followed, then Yntegrity : Diversity, Yntegrity : Paris, and then Yntegrity : TEDx. A largescale work is currently being developed, with smaller sketches on the horizon as a foundation.
