is a Taiwanese composer, writing pieces that focus on exploring the experience of timelessness evoked through fragmented musical experiences. Having graduated from Taipei National University of the Arts, completed a Master's degree in Music Composition at the Manhattan School of Music and currently pursuing a PhD in Music Composition at Northwestern University, she has received the 2021 Transient Canvas Composition Fellowship program, 2020 Nief-Norf International Call for Scores, 2020 Thailand New Music and Arts Symposium Call for Scores, among others. Yi-Ting's compositions have been performed, awarded, and/or commissioned by the Arditti Quartet, Ensemble Suono Giallo, Ensemble vocal Les Métaboles, Ensemble Mise-en, PushBack Collective, Quatuor Tana, Yarn/Wire, 3PeopleMusic, and others.
Like many composers, Yi-Ting got into music by playing piano and Chinese instruments. Getting into composition only during her senior year of high school, she decided to continue exploring the field, completing her undergraduate training in Taiwan. "I always wanted to be a composer, but was never sure if I could be one," the musician recounts, describing how that put a lot of pressure on her. "For me, being a composer [was something] serious — you have [to have] training and know what you're doing… Everyone can come up with a melody."
