New Album: Carnival of the Animals

Happy to share with you the album I released earlier this year, Carnival of The Animals, which is a collection of animal themes in classical music, featuring my piano solo transcription of Saint Saens’ Carnival of the Animals. It’s the most ‘delightful’ project I’ve ever worked on! The music expresses pure happiness with animals. Hope to give people more positive feelings at this strange year.

The album is available in all digital platforms:

Immersive Digital Performance

In the last three months, I was working in the 3D world (with the gaming engine ‘Unity’) and created an immersive digital performance ‘Every Dollar is a Soldier/With Money You’re a Dragon’. 

The production features gaming and 3D technology, my new score for Chinese instruments and electronic music and Daniel York Loh’s beautiful writing exploring the migrant experience, from the poorest of Chinese sailors who jumped ship in the East End, to the richest of men like William Waldorf Astor. I also aim to create a ‘live’ experience for online performances, so you will interact with other audiences in the game [performance] as different avatars.
You will require to use a laptop or different forms of computers to enter the performance through clicking the link you receive. 

Performance dates: 19, 21, 23, 24, 30 April 7 pm, 28 April 2 pm (British Summer Time)

Concert Online 8th November

Hope it finds you and your close ones well – not too much affected by the coming lockdown! 

I have been carrying on making more music. Recently just shared two videos showing some piano music with electronic processing. You can have look here: ImprovisationSweet Summer. Any feedback is welcome!

I was hoping that I will be playing the first live concert this Sunday after a long while. But because of the lockdown, it is moved to online streaming. Please join me if you can this Sunday 8th November 3:30 pm. I will play my piano transcription of Carnival of the Animals and the new music I wrote during the previous months. You can request a link of the live streaming by emailing here

Last work to share here, we have launched a new digital work created by artist Pamela Carter produced by Chinese Arts Now, an imagined letter exchange between the artists’ two grandmothers: one was English and the other was Paranakan (described as Chinese-not-Chinese). A very intriguing work. You can watch it for free here

September 2020

I’m really happy that the relaunch of the app, Augmented Chinatown 2.0 by me working with Chinese Arts Now, Donald Shek, Joel Tan and many great artists, has received great response.  It got 表情圖示表情圖示表情圖示表情圖示 from The Stage and Lyn Gardner called it ‘infinitely touching’. If you’re planning to travel to centre London please do experience it in Chinatown. (Alternatively you can also experience remotely at home.) The app will be permanently availably on App Store and Google Play

I just finished recording my new piano album and plan to release it early November 2020. Here is a little preview for you. Let me know if you have any feedback!

On Wednesday 30 September 7-8 pm, I will be chairing a panel discussion ‘Combining Technology and Arts’ with three amazing artists/producer: Seph Li, creative coder and media artist, AR artist/developer Donald Shek and Tuyet Van Huynh, an independent theatre & film producer and curator. It’s a free event but require registration. If you’re interested in the topic, hope to see you there!

Please stay safe and well!
