I believe music is a collaborative art.
After the piece was born, it is the medium, the players and the audiences to make interpretation of the musical work. The rational process transforms into people's emotional experience; and the meaning of music exists in the interaction within the work and listeners.

A composer from Taiwan, Peilin graduated with her master's degree in film scoring from New York University with “Sorel Women In Film Scoring” scholarship.
Her musical journey starts when she touches violin at 5. She loves the possibility existing inside this small string instrument. Since 10, she has joined in orchestras, chamber groups, choir and pop bands as violinist, pianist, arranger, and director. She loves and is good at collaboration.
However, playing others' music isn't enough for her -- so this is when the composition journey starts.
She finds her voice within composing for films, that she can collaborate not only with musicians, but also with all the talents involves in a film. Sometimes when needed, she writes music for her own.
While passionate about music, she has her interests in science, softball, swim, food, Taiwanese culture, and nature as well. Her everlasting curiosity to the world and her sensitivity about humanity become the source of her musical creativity.
