Alex is a London-based Hongkongese pianist, organist and freelance composer, participating in different competitions. He also teaches piano, holds freelance repetiteur and accompaniment posts, and is a church piano accompanist. His musical style is heavily influenced by Mahler, with his great orchestration sound, and by Beethoven, with his classical structure in orchestral pieces. The counterpoint of Bach also shows a constant influence in his orchestration texture. The use of orchestral sound by contemporary composers, such as Gwen Pritchard, James McMillan, and Thomas Ades left a great impression of Alex, and enriched his expressiveness in orchestration.
