Terry Feng is a musician, engineer, and creative artist challenging musicians and audiences alike to push the boundary of shared human experience. From building interactive software tools to empower creative expression or composing musical works that envelop atmospheres, musings, and non-traditional practice, he invites participation to examine and interact with that which lies around us.

His research focuses on musical engagement and co-creativity, a creative process that involves collaborating with others, operating under creative contraints, or working alongside AI agents and machine learning tools. Towards these ends, his work spans real-time digital signal processing (DSP), audio programming language and tool development for ChucK, and software interfaces and audiovisual expression for human-computer interaction (HCI).

While at the University of California, San Diego, Terry studied piano with Aleck Karis and Dimitrios Paganous-Koukakis. Studying violin with Ilana Waniuk, performing with the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus, and serving as Vice President of the Symphonic Student Association (SSA), Terry received the Dr. Milton Saier Memorial Classical Young Artist Award and Scholarship. As a composer and producer, his album Library of Dreams with Donald Liang was described as "bringing the dynamic effects of site-specific sound art together with digital-electronic groove music of the slickest, chill-est quality" (UC San Diego Today).

Terry is currently pursuing his master's at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University. His research is advised by Ge Wang and Patricia Alessandrini. Terry is a member of the Stanford New Ensemble (SNE) and Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk).

In his free time, Terry enjoys learning new instruments (currently guitar and drums), collecting old ones (@collecting_pianos), and exploring the outdoors and taking pictures.
