|Alice Hui-Sheng Chang was born on the 31st of July, 1984 in Changhua, Taiwan.|
|Alice Hui-Sheng Chang’s work focuses solely on developing extended vocal technique as a means for improvisation and communication. Her vocal explorations include sound from varying tension of physical vocal parts, driving air into alternative passages and vibration of calls and breath. The physical sound produced by a mouth and throat organism, under no computer manipulation, is not only for the artist to be fully involved during performance, but also to challenge the listener with an intimate relationship while receiving. The results of these explorations create a delicate world of primal and vulnerable soundscapes.Alice has received a Master of Fine Arts (sound) at RMIT- Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University in 2006, along with a School of Art Award. She received a Bachelor of Arts (Media Arts) with Distinction, RMIT in 2005, also a grant from RMIT Union Arts in 2005.
