Chen’s inter-disciplinary background attracted critical praise during her student years ("the kind of propulsive, emotionally resonant score that choreographers tend to dream of," said the New York Times) and beyond. Her collaborative resume includes music for numerous theatrical productions like The Crucible and Macbeth, an acclaimed digital animation film Trilemm (recently broadcast on PBS), and a computer-enhanced chamber opera for the Juilliard School to premier in December 2005. She’s also composed major pieces with choreographers like Alvin Ailey’s Iyun Harrison, and was Composer-in-Residence of the Appalachian Summer Festival in Boone, North Carolina, where she worked with choreographer Adam Hougland, a members of The Juilliard Dance Ensemble, and the Broyhill Chamber Ensemble in the creation of a total chamber work, Stand Nine. As a violinist, Chen tours extensively throughout the world with a focus on new music, and sails without effort through the intricacies of the interactive computer music program MAX/MSP.
