Twincussion is formed by Taiwanese twin brothers Jen-Ting and Jen-Yu Chien. With their unique music partnership for over 20 years since the age of six, the twins present a new face in the percussion field. Their diverse repertoires range from romantic transcriptions to contemporary music. The duo connects music from East Asia to the West and have commissioned original percussion compositions from Taiwanese folksongs to electronic music.

Twincussion has participated in multiple international music competitions in Europe and North America. Their first international debut was at the 2014 Southern California International Marimba Competition where they received the Grand Honorable Mention (second place). In 2016, they travelled to Europe and won first prize in the ensemble category at the International Percussion Competition in Italy.

They were awarded first prize in the Soloist Competition at the Royal Danish Academy of Music and received the Idella Foundation scholarship in Copenhagen. In 2018, Twincussion was invited to perform at Weill Recital Hall (Carnegie Hall) and presented their debut Showcase Concert at the Percussive Art Society International Convention in Indianapolis. In 2019, they performed and gave masterclass at six different universities in the U.S., and organized concerts in the U.K., Japan, Taiwan, Spain, China, Denmark and Switzerland.

Jen-Ting and Jen-Yu both hold the Advanced Postgraduate (Soloist) Diploma in the Royal Danish Academy of Music and are supported by Yamaha and Innovative Percussion.
