Wei Yang is a composer/sound artist from China. He works with different mediums, through which he often contemplates the body’s role in sound production, sound in space, as well as the integration of various data from the performance environment (reverberation, light, etc.). Wei composes both instrumental and electronic music, and builds performative systems that allow dynamic interaction between different components. His works have been presented in the U.S., China, Poland, Japan, Finland, Canada, Austria, Germany, France, Mexico, Brazil and Switzerland. Wei received his Doctor of Musical Arts from University of Washington under the supervision of Joël François-Durand. He is currently undertaking his second doctoral studies at the university’s Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media, working closely with Richard Karpen and Joseph Anderson.
