Born in Chiayi (Taiwan), Huang Chi-Yen’s music involves abstract spirits and embodies smooth transitions of timbres and tense musical expressions.
Huang’s work was selected for the 2021 Taipei International New Music Festival and the TimeArt Academy Young Composers Project. He has been invited to perform at venues such as the National Recite Hall, the National Theater’s Experimental Theater, and the National Concert Hall in Taiwan. Huang has also been awarded the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) Summer Course Grant to study at the University of Bamberg.
Huang’s enthusiasm for cross-disciplinary collaboration is exemplified by the work he produced while studying at the Taipei National University of the Arts, which integrated elements of instrumental and electronic music, the Ambisonics system, and theatrical performance. This work was performed at the Kuandu Arts Festival in 2020 and 2021 and the Taiwan Contemporary Culture Lab’s “Diversonics” Sound Festival.
