Biography

Ng Yu Hng is a composer based in London. His pieces have recently been performed in the UK, Germany and Singapore. 

 

His music explores the space between familiarity and unfamiliarity. Musical and literary quotations intersperse his pieces, while the 'ghost' of harmony lives on in spectral soundscapes. His works are currently featured featured at the IMPRINT & 傳承 concert in Nov and Dec 2020 respectively, generously supported by the National Arts Council of Singapore. Other recent works have been performed by the Lontano Ensemble, KCL Modern Music Society, and by pianists Richard Uttley and Maria Marchant. 

Upcoming projects include working with the Hill Trio, CHROMA Ensemble and the pianist George Fu. 

He is currently pursuing a MA in Composition at the Royal Academy of Music under Prof. Morgan Hayes, generously supported by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust's postgraduate scholarship.  Yu Hng also obtained a first-class honours degree in music at King's College London, under the supervision of Dr. Edward Nesbit. There, he achieved the Purcell Prize in Music for academic excellence. Other composition teachers include Hans Abrahamsen, Mr Phoon Yew Tien and Dr Thomas Hyde. Yu Hng is a member of the Composers Society of Singapore.
