C. Spencer Yeh is a musician recognized for his interdisciplinary activities and collaborations as an artist, improviser, and composer, as well his music project Burning Star Core. After immigrating to the United States from Taiwan when he was a child, Yeh looked towards drive-in movies, local and public television, “Mom-and-Pop” video stores, and genre movie magazines as early guides in his developing interests. Though Yeh studied violin at a young age, as a teenager he forwent his training, considering his encounter with the 4-track tape recorder as his first real revelation in working with sound and music.
His work has been featured in programs at MoMA, The Whitney, The Walker Art Center, The Institute of Fine Arts at NYU, the Kitchen, the Renaissance Society, Empty Gallery, and The Liverpool Biennial. His video work is represented by Electronic Arts Intermix in New York.
