In recognition of his work, Yang was awarded a Li Ka Shing Prize (2003-2005) from The University of Hong Kong and a Ford Foundation Fellowship from the Asian Cultural Council in New York City (2006). In 2006/07, Yang was inducted into the "Tang Music Project" and held research appointments at Princeton University and Utrecht University. Yang's research extends from the seventh century to the present day, and focuses on issues of national and cultural identity in both Chinese and Japanese music. He has published in Music Research, Journal of the Musicological Society of Japan, and Palace Museum Journal, amongst others. Invited by the Smithsonian Institution, Yang is currently completing an archaeological report on a Chinese musical instrument housed at the National Museum of Asian Art in Washington D.C. Yang is the English editor of Chinese Annals of Music. In addition to his musical endeavours, Yang also holds a degree in mechanics and engineering from Peking University.
