Ng Chor Guan is one of Malaysia’s most sought-after music composers and sound designers for theatre, dance, film and new media. Hailing from Kuala Lampur, Ng Chor Guan’s concert works have been performed by orchestras, DJ’s and all manner of ensembles throughout Asia and the world. Utilizing innovative musical approaches and emerging technologies, Ng Chor Guan aims to create work that in his words “represent [our] era,” yet remain “poignant and timeless.” A master theremin and french horn player, Ng Chor Guan’s approach is classical and contemporary in equal measure.
