Terry Feng is a musician, engineer, and creative artist challenging musicians and audiences alike to push the boundary of shared human experience. His research lies at the creative intersection of real-time digital signal processing (DSP), software tool development, and accessible experiences for music human-computer interaction (HCI). Towards musical engagement and empowering co-creativity, he develops computer-mediated instruments and interfaces to create new musical experiences for performance, expression, and play.

Terry is a graduate from the University of California, San Diego. There he studied piano with Aleck Karis and Dimitrios Paganous-Koukakis as well as violin with Ilana Waniuk. Having performed with the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus and served as Vice President of the Symphonic Student Association, Terry is a recipient of the Dr. Milton Saier Memorial Classical Young Artist Award and Scholarship for excellence in musical performance. As a composer and produceer, his album Library of Dreams with Donald Liang has been praised as "bringing the dynamic effects of site-specific sound art together with digital-electronic groove music of the slickest, chill-est quality" (Sarah Hankins, UC San Diego Today).

Terry is currently a Master's student at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University. His research is advised by Patricia Alessandrini, Jonathan Berger, and  Ge Wang. He is the author of WebChucK IDE, a browser-based IDE for audio programming in ChucK. Terry is a member of the Stanford New Ensemble (SNE), computer music band USB3,  and Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk).

In his free time, Terry enjoys learning new musical instruments (currently guitar and drumset), @collecting_pianos, and enjoying the outdoors by taking lots of photos.
