Hi. I am an self-taught orchestrator from Hong Kong.
I started learning British marching percussion when I was in primary school. At the age of 10, I started learning concert percussion. My orchestral experience was mainly concert band during the few years that followed. I started getting into orchestral music when I was 13 or 14, and joined my secondary school orchestra when I was 16. Playing the Shostakovich 5th and the Cockainge at the time. I started orchestrating by arranging music for percussion ensemble when I was 14, then into arranging orchestral music for concert band not long after that. My first orchestra arrangement was done when I was 17. And now I am 20.
I have been learning piano in parallel of all those percussion and band stuff, but it was never brilliant. Enough for me to build up an multiphonic ear, but that's pretty much it.
I am a native Hongkonger with a Chinese ethnic. I speak native Cantonese, English, and Mandarin.
So there. Hi.
