My name is Yang Xie. I was born in a small coastal city in south China. I began to play the violin for church services about the age of four with my families, that means that the music became a tool for discovering the world when I was little.
In the past few years, I struggled with some mental illnesses, so I swapped the performance to composition at the time of self-possessed as the treatment besides the psychological rehabilitation. As an contemporary composer, I feel that behind the ecstasy is a raft that drifting over the endless ocean of “unfalsifiability”.
I need to communicate with others so as not to be alone in the journey of life. I will appreciate whom it may share the precious moment with me.
