Gabby Yi Wen (b. 1995) is a sound/performance artist, who employs mostly improvisation, electronic synthesis and circuit bending techniques. She is originally from Shenzhen, China and currently based in San Francisco, CA. She embraces, and is even mesmerized by the stochastic, the disordered, the obsolete and the dysfunctional. But she equally appreciates the peaceful and the unwavering and everything in between. Gabby mostly works with code, modular synthesizers, homemade electronics, field recordings and guqin (Chinese seven-stringed zither).
Gabby holds a BA in Art & Technology from Mills College, where she studied electroacoustic music composition, improvisation, electronic arts, coding and audio circuit design under instructions of James Fei, Chris Brown, Maggi Payne, and John Bischoff.
Works have been presented at SF Tape Music Festival, Active Music Series, Luggage Store Gallery Creative Music Series, SIMM Series, Oakland Freedom Jazz Society, and MAGMA Shenzhen. Lecture Translation: NOT YOUR WORLD MUSIC - Noise in Southeast Asia at OCAT Shenzhen.
