A native of Montreal, Edwin H. Ng (b. 1994) is a Canadian composer, pianist, and data scientist. His musical research focuses on soundscape compositions that aim at blending traditional elements into a contemporary setting such that the playfulness of contemporary musical dialogues can be fully appreciated.
Edwin's music has been the result of numerous collaborations. He has worked with ensembles such as the London Sinfonietta, the Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble, and the Vancouver Chamber Choir. His music has been performed and read in Austria, Canada, Russia, and the United Kingdom.
His set of choral pieces Haiku from Tashme granted him the Canadian national first prize in the choral category of the 2022 SOCAN Foundation Awards for Young Composers. He was also among the finalists in the 2022 ROSL Composition Award.
Edwin H. Ng is currently pursuing his Doctor of Music in Composition at the Université de Montréal with Jimmie LeBlanc and Ana Sokolović. He formerly completed his Master of Music in Composition at McGill University under the supervision of Sean Ferguson. Through festivals, he attended private lessons with world-renowned composers such as Yuri Kasparov, Dmitri Kourliandski, Philippe Leroux, Januibe Tejera, Deqing Wen, and Dinuk Wijeratne, as well as a masterclass with Oscar Bianchi.
