Biography

James Chan (1997-) is a Hong Kong-born composer currently based in London. Since 2011 he has been educated in the UK, and is now studying for an MMus at the Royal Academy of Music under Edmund Finnis and David Sawer.

His music often inhabits a delicate and fragile sound world, with a unique and sensual harmonic and timbral palette. Drawing on a wide range of cultural references, recently he has been much inspired by other art forms, with a particular penchant for the writings of Virginia Woolf.

In 2016 he was announced as a winner in the senior category of the BBC Inspire Young Composer's Competition. Since then his music has been performed by a number of ensembles including the Aurora Orchestra and the NYCGB Fellowship Octet (2016-17). Most recently, he has been chosen to be part of the London Symphony Orchestra Panufnik Scheme 2019.
