A native of Hong Kong, Viola Yip is a New York‐based composer and performer, who tries to find the boundaries and push them in her sound world.
Her compositions are not limited to acoustic music, electronic music, graphic scores and structured improvisations. Recent works have appeared in ArtX at Bowling Green State University, Women Composers Festival of Hartford, Ravinia Festival, Fresh Inc Festival, soundSCAPE Festival, TEDXSMU, University of Florida, University of Illinois at Urbana‐Champaign, NASA saxophone conference, ThingNY spam v3.0 concert, Quiet City concert, Vox Novus Concert, Musicarama concert series (Hong Kong) and PAUSA Art House (Buffalo).
As a new music advocate, she performs contemporary works regularly as a pianist, speaker and improviser. Her recent interest falls on using her own voice as an instrument and exploring the expressivity and musicality of the human natural voice.
