International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Tapping into an expansive repertoire of New Age, library music, meditative jazz and loopy 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.

Yu Su studied classical piano for years, devoting countless hours to learning the contrapuntal complexities of Bach, and later the ambience of Debussy and Liszt. It’s only upon relocating to Canada five years ago that she got acquainted with disco and funk, thereby opening up a whole new realm of sonic possibilities. Since cutting her teeth with the hallucinatory abstractions of electronic project You’re Me alongside Scott Johnson Gailey, the Vancouver transplant has branched out on the solo front, releasing some poignantly psychedelic, aquatic jazz productions on a variety of international labels. She is indebted to Art of Noise, Laurie Anderson and Sun Ra, blending 1990s sounds of future jazz into her own world chockfull of mallets, strings, and piano melodies.

Yu Su returns to showcase her own eclectic compositions in a live set that weaves together an evocative musical narrative underscored by effortless rhythms.
