Starting a doctorate at the University of Manchester

In August 2020, I finished my MPhil at the University of Oxford.

Due to the pandemic, I am not to be formally conferred my degree until late 2022.

Nevertheless, I have officially begun my new journey!

I am now studying for a PhD in Music Composition at the University of Manchester, with Prof Camden Reeves.

Despite the logistic hardships, UoM has been a welcoming community, and it’s been fun to explore the big city.

Stay tuned for more updates and more music!

Commission for Arts Go Digital Platform scheme

I am excited to announce that I have been commissioned under the Hong Kong Arts Development Council’s Arts Go Digital Platform scheme for workshops entitled Decoding Creativity: Interactive Platform for Contemporary Music Appreciation.

I will be writing a piece for a jiwu-guzang duet that draws heavily on observations and phenomena in our age of online meetings and performances. It is a piece that can only be performed through an online platform. Writing for unfamiliar instruments in such an aleatory setting will be a welcome challenge.

The piece will be workshopped and performed in the first half of 2021.

Stay tuned!
