Shiuan Chang’s compositions have been described as “a tapestry of extraordinary sound and idea; not word of painting or sound landscape, but rather a psychological meditation.” – by Malcolm Peyton, Professor of the New England Conservatory
Winner of the 2013 New England Conservatory Honor competition, 2015 Earplay Donald Aird Composition Competition, and 2016 Nief-Norf Composition Competition, Shiuan believes that music is the map of logical sound being performed lively during the specific time and space by both audiences and the performers. He views that the performance is birth; the following applause is death, and the performers’ acknowledge bow is reincarnation.
Shiuan Chang’s music have been performed nationally and internationally including Suntory Hall, Jordan Hall, Merkin Hall, Bartok Hall, ODC theater, Tenso Music Days in Belgium, Boston Early Music Festival, Mise-En Festival, June in Buffalo, YCM, Serga Festival, Composit Festival, and the Bartok festival. He has also worked with Ensemble Multilaterale, Ensemble Musicatreize, Divertimento Ensemble, Earplay Ensemble, signal ensemble, Antico Moderno, Mise-En Ensemble, Neue Vocalisten Stuttgart, Princeton Singers, Orkest de Ereprijs, and Alter Ego.
Shiuan is active in outreach programs. He has produced a full-length show to support the Genesis Social Welfare Foundation, and written film music for the Children Are Us Foundation twenty-years anniversary documentary film.
