♦    I am a cellist, vocalist, composer and improviser actively exploring the intersection where music meets with the creative spirit of experimentation, improvisation and the synergy of multiple disciplines. Bridging areas of music, dance, theater and visual art, I am interested in finding the potential for transformation in each work for both the artist and receiver alike.
♦    Raised in upstate New York and the San Francisco Bay Area, I studied classical piano and cello from an early age but took a hiatus to pursue my interest in design, leading me from Stanford University's product design program to the University of Applied Arts in Vienna to a fellowship at Fabrica, a creative laboratory in northern Italy. While living in the transportive surroundings of Venice, I realized a vision to create performances by uniting a lifelong love for the medium of music with an inquisitive and creative process that I had found freedom in through design. Venice as a city was a mirror to conjure the impossible, absurd and ephemeral in art and to recognize its immaterial yet vital importance to daily life.
♦    At the heart of my work is a desire to expand the possibilities of the voice and cello and to explore their potential in many modes of performance. Since returning to music, I completed an MFA at Mills College and have been fortunate to collaborate with many singular artists, including Fred Frith, Ellen Fullman, Luciano Chessa, Annie Lewandowski, Soren Kjargaard, Carla Kihlstedt, ROVA Saxophone Quartet, conceptual artist Jonathon Keats and dance pioneer Anna Halprin. My recent projects include a debut release on Tzadik, The Unlearning, a collection of songs for cello, violin and two voices inspired by Francisco Goya's Disasters of War etchings and O Sleep, an improvised opera which explores the conundrum of sleep and dream life.
♦    I have shared my music internationally at such venues as Fondation Cartier in Paris, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, Fabbrica Europa in Florence Italy, Unlimited 21 Festival in Wels, Austria and at The Stone in New York City and have been awarded artist residencies at the Headlands Center for the Arts, Yaddo, Montalvo and Civitella Ranieri. I am also the recipient of grants from the Center for Cultural Innovation, American Composers Forum Subito Program and Meet The Composer. I currently live in Berkeley, California.

♦    "If I started on this album sceptical that it was another cute rejigging of classical string composition, I ended totally conviced by the sheer warmth and humanity of this project. ... So all we have is cello, violin and two voices. Wong has written 21 pieces inspired by Goya's Disasters of War etchings (1811) and the whole takes 43 minutes, so this is an album bursting with ideas and moving at a lick. ... Wong's writing is highly educated, but free of all academic stuffiness. She flits with a light touch between melodic and experimental modes, and has the rare compositional skill to leave enough space for her ideas to breathe. Likewise the two voices are natural, with individual character, but able to blend in blocks of folkish harmony. There's a feel of Bertolt Brecht hovering, as in titles like "Folksong For the Landless". Towards the end, "Candelhat" is an amazing, racing, three minute ballad leading to a further three minutes of glittering string texture: are those electric fans playing tabletop violins? Whatever, there's an openminded attitude going on." — Clive Bell, The Wire, November 2011
♦    "The Unlearning — a masterpiece exquisitely realized." — Fred Frith, Henry Cow, Cosa Brava
♦    "It is difficult not to remain enchanted by the 21 miniatures presented by Theresa Wong in her first solo outing." — Massimo Ricci, Paris Transatlantic Magazine Winter 2011
