Xuan is an experimental video artist based in Berlin. Coming from a background in music, her work focuses on the distinctive interconnectivity between sound and image in the context of visual music. She specializes in abstract audio-visual collaborations with new music ensembles and living composers.
She has collaborated with artists such as Glenn Kotche, Pierre Jodlowski, Michael Burritt, HEX Ensemble, Nois Quartet, Third Coast Percussion, and Ensemble Garage, which along with her own Earsight Duo (with percussionist Peter Ferry) have led to performances at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the MCA Chicago, University of South Carolina, Carnegie Mellon University, Constellation, SF Jazz, Le Poisson Rouge, and the Indie Grits Film Festival. In addition, Xuan served as Adjunct Professor of Film Studies from 2016 to 2018 teaching, experimental filmmaking at the Eastman School of Music.
