Coming from a classical piano background of training, Kaifeng-born, Vancouver based Yu Su has arrived as a sound artist and composer corresponding audible elements freely between the cosmological Daoist mandate and the ecological property of the Pacific Northwest.
Tapping into an expansive repertoire of New Age, library music, meditative jazz and house, Yu Su’s emotion-packed compositional punches are best described as organically groovy jazz-bient expeditions between coasts. A proficient instrumentalist who conjures up moments of natural and synthetic beauty, her delicate, dub-inflected signature balances a variety of luminous and wistful downtempo textures. She is responsible for productions on DC’s People’s Potential Unlimited, NYC’s RVNG Intl. & Arcane, and The Hague-based Wichelroede.
