As a Soloist

Yite finds her inspiration in a wide range of art forms, including literature, philosophy, cinema, visual art, and nature.

Since 2018, Yite has been producing personal projects regularly, of which includes: 

2019 Recital “Edge of Lightness”: A monologue with guitar, reciting, and singing. It centered on a dialogue with oneself, man, god, nature, and things that no longer exist. The performance included the Taiwanese premiers of “Solare” by Fausto Romitelli and “Platero y yo” by Juan Ramón Jiménez, performed at the Marteaux Musical Performing Arts Theater, Art aNew - Gallery & Cafe, and 182 Art Space. 

2021 Recital “Unbounded”: Catalan and Japanese music from the 20th century performed by combining different conceptions of space and time. It included Taiwanese premieres of works by Maurice Ohana (“Cadran Lunaire for 10 Strings Guitar”), Toshio Hosokawa (“Serenade”) and Terukaku Yamashita (“Cora”), performed at the National Taichung Theater in Taiwan.
