Xuan is a new media artist and filmmaker working at the intersection of music and visual art. Her work focuses on the distinct interconnectivity between sound and image in the context of visual music, and often takes shape in the form of live audio-visual performances 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 have led to performances in venues such as 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 the summer of 2018, she was invited to attend the Eighth Blackbird Creative Lab as their first production fellow.
Xuan is a graduate of Eastman School of Music in Piano Performance, and has subsequently taught experimental filmmaking there as an Adjunct Professor of Humanities from 2016-2018. She is currently pursuing a M.A. in Media Spaces at the BTK University of Art and Design in Berlin, in generative art and audio-visual interactivity.
