Xo Xinh (b. 1978) is an electroacoustic composer, performer, improviser, and music educator. Most of his works aim to re-contextualize the essence of traditional instruments through spectral processing and interactive manipulation of the acoustic sound by the computer, as well as to explore the transformation of traditional music through the contemporary and experimental medium. His main interest and passion is to experiment the new sounds and new techniques that are able to merge the old with the new, the tradition with the contemporary, while mending the gap between them sonically and musically.
Xinh's compositions have been selected and performed in the U.S., N. Ireland, New Zealand, Canada, Australia, Italy and Netherlands including Sonorities Festival of Contemporary Music, Australasian Computer Music Conference's Sonic Art concert, Electronic Music Midwest Festival, Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium, PNEM Sound Art Festival. In 2012, Xo Xinh received an MFA in Electronic Music & Recording Media from Mills College, California, where he studied electroacoustic composition and computer music with Chris Brown and John Bischoff. He is currently an Instructor of Music at Evergreen Valley College and Cogswell Polytechnical College in Bay Area, California.
