We had the good fortune of connecting with Shujie Yu and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Shujie, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
The reason I chose to work in creative industry was when I made an audiovisual work three years ago. I have always been thinking about one question, how do all these sounds look like? With my accumulated skill-set, I determined to visualize white noise as it is pure but complicated. Moreover, I think white noise is perfect for reflecting basic elements like point, line and plane in the planar space. Then According to our sound input, our program will create its unique images. To best represent the feature of white noise in a planar space. We combined Controllable parameters of music with computer data, connected sound and vision to bring a brand new artistic experience. I was very excited at that time, and I wanted to let more people see such works. It was at that moment that I decided to go into Creative career.

I will also take them to the mountain from high down to see the city of Los Angeles, as well as the houses of rich people on the mountain.
