Johnny (he/him) is a Chinese-Kiwi Australian composer and producer, currently studying Composition for Creative Industries at the Sydney Conservatorium. His passion lies in writing music to a narrative and being a puzzle piece to the bigger picture, bringing out the emotions of the story and touching the heartstrings of the audience for a fully immersive experience.
Johnny has worked in collaboration with all sorts of media ranging from art music to dance, theatre, game, and many more. He has written works that have been played by ensembles such as Sydney Youth Orchestra, Macleans College Concert Band, and various casual Sydney Con ensembles.
His most recent collaborations in theatre productions include Slanted Theatre's “Chain Play” for Sydney Fringe Festival, assisting with a number of shows by New Ghosts Theatre Company, and back to back shows by Akimbo & Co. for new Australian play “Tongue Tied”, and “The Wasp”.
On top of his compositional practice, Johnny also focuses time on his piano, harp, and viola instrumental practices, as well as conducting. Quoting his tutor, being a composer is to be in the long game. It's a life of everlearning.
