An avid listener of jazz music, YuYing seeks to fuse improvisation with her own life experience. She takes inspirations and thoughts of her travels and her love of Francis Bacon’s art and turns them into musical notes that bounce off the pages, as heard in her original, award-winning piece Twisted One. Through her music, YuYing hopes to share her emotion, passion and love of life with listeners around the world, once performance at a time.
