Chromic Duo, featuring Lucy Yao and Dorothy Chan, believes that slowing down and looking at the smallest objects of the everyday can uncover truths and reimagine how we connect with each other. Blending toy piano, electronics, and multimedia into genre-fluid performances and installations, Chromic Duo cultivates spaces to share stories inspired by their experiences as third-culture kids within the Asian American diaspora. Recent highlights include collaborating with Welcome to Chinatown to feature AAPI business owners and artists in an immersive soundwalk in New York City’s Chinatown, and partnerships with the National Gallery in Washington, DC, the New York Philharmonic’s Education Program, and the Baryshnikov Arts Center. Over the next two seasons Chromic Duo is honored to be innovators-in-residence at Purdue University (PU), collaborating with the PU team to develop and launch the StairWELL project, an interactive sculpture installation that explores the intersection of art, tech, and wellness. They are grand prize-winners at the Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) and Concert Artists Guild (CAG).
