Yifeng Yvonne Yuan
Yifeng Yvonne Yuan converts the frequency of herself losing socks into the frequency of the pitches; she weighs raindrops to determine the weight of her noteheads. She is a composer, performer, and media artist, born and raised in Taiyuan, China, and currently resides between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. Yvonne is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Music Composition at UCSB. She is also a master's student in the MAT department. Yvonne holds a master’s degree in Music Composition and bachelor's degrees in Sociology and Musicology from UCLA.
Yvonne draws inspiration from the ritualistic practices of early human beings. She explores the transient and vulnerable experiences inherent to human existence in her works. Sound and poetry are her primary mediums of artistic expression.
