Yu-Siang Huang obtained a BA in Piano Performance from the National Taiwan University of Arts in 2009. The now 26 year-old Yu-siang suffered from a retinal disease when he was born and lost his eyesight as a result. He showed his music talent at very young age as he remembered every single note he had ever heard and that inspired him to learn the piano. He once said, “Music enables me to feel the colours in the world.” Currently, Huang plays in “Baba Band” and “Dark Glasses”, a band supported by the Taichung Blind Welfare Association. He also won the 3rd annual President’s Education Awards. While he was still studying at university, Director Chang Jung-Chi turned his life story into the short film, The End of the Tunnel which was nominated for the Best Short Film at the 45th Golden Horse Awards. Huang’s life is documented in two short films, Prologue and The End of the Tunnel whereas his music is heard in several films including My Football Summer, Grandma Cheerleaders and documentaries made by the Environmental Protection Association.


1987年出生於台中,畢業於國立臺中啟明學校、國立臺灣藝術大學音樂系,為國內第一位主修鋼琴的全盲音樂學士,目前從事演奏、編曲、配樂等工作。

裕翔的音樂風格橫跨古典、爵士、流行、拉丁等類型,是台灣極少數能將各種音樂風格與樂種融會貫通的鋼琴與鍵盤演奏家,其現場即興的演出實力更是令聽眾如癡如醉、令許多專業演奏家驚豔折服。

求學期間曾獲第三屆總統教育獎,裕翔不僅與國家交響樂團、長榮交響樂團在音樂會上合奏,也是多位華人重量級歌手如江蕙與製作人指定合作的對象。活躍於國內外樂壇的他,演出足跡遍及國內與日本、澳洲等地。

2012年以他的真實故事改編而成的台灣電影“逆光飛翔”,不僅使裕翔變身為電影男主角,也為他獲得2012年金馬獎年度台灣傑出電影工作者,以及2013年米蘭電影節最佳男主角的榮譽。

戲裡戲外,裕翔以他的生命經驗感動、鼓舞了許多人,自幼雙眼全盲的他說:「聲音讓我感覺到世界的顏色與樣態」,雖然他的世界總是天黑,但是從他指尖流露出的音符,卻讓世人看到絢麗的彩虹。
