Productions I’ve worked on include two electronic operas of my own, and theatrical plays where I provided music direction/composition/tech-system build and live performance. I also played at a variety of venues that promote prog-rock, synthpop and electro-acoustic music. I got to work with regular bands, conventional string ensembles, and esoteric ensembles. Between 2012 and 2018, Steinway Piano Gallery Nashville played host to Shueh-li Presents in Nashville, an annual concert of new music.Shueh-li

Shueh-li may well be Singapore’s 1st and only Diva of the Theremin: she is producer, performer, concert administrator and artist all rolled into one.
Ong sees herself as one of the myriad results of the experiments in the longterm history of new music.Tan Shzr Ee, Arts Correspondent, The Straits Times on the 2004 shueh-li’s xenovibes, singapore
One of the first events I’ve experienced in Singapore over the past 6 years that engaged a respect firstly for its cutting edge contemporary artistic exploration, and secondly a parallel high entertainment. Shueh-li is a truly amazing talent; informed, professional, warm, diverse, exciting, inspiring.Art Monthly, Australia on the 2004 shueh-li’s xenovibes in singapore
Your performance on the theremin was spell-binding – other-worldly, but it made this world a better place.Miles Kupa, Australian High Commissioner to Singapore on the Return to Singapore tour, 2008
Thank you again for such an amazing show last night! You bought a really wonderful energy.Owner of Arcana Durham, U.S., 2018
Hearing Shueh-li for the 1st time was quite an experience. I had a preconceived notion of what her music might sound like based on her choice of instrumentation, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Melodic, thoughtful and heartfelt music coming from what I had considered up til now to be a novelty instrument (theremin). Wow! She is a master of her chosen instrument.Bob Bailey, Executive Director, Sweetwater Academy, U.S. 2019
The DVD (concert premiere 2004) is very cool and has very high musicality. Looking forward to your new activities.T Watanabe, Yamaha Corp Japan on the 2004 SHUEH-LI’S XENOVIBES, SINGAPORE
