Tze Yeung Ho (b. 1992) has worked in a wide array of projects in the past two years including the staged work “23.27” with storyteller Heidi Dahlsveen at the Norwegian Storytelling Festival, a one-woman theatre work – “leier.johak.tenant” – in collaboration with Amsterdam-based soprano Elisabeth Hetherington, two commissions by the St. Petersburg-based Mol0t Ensemble, two commissions by Nynorsk messingkvintett and the operetta, “jeg gir faen i magnoliaen?” with librettist Linda Gabrielsen, which has been described as “an exercise in extremes” (Seismograf, DK). As a Norwegian-Canadian composer of Cantonese descent, Tze Yeung’s works are closely tied to his diverse background and are inspired by the speech sounds of the various languages he engages with on a daily basis. Tze Yeung is currently pursuing his PhD in composition at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre under the tutelage of Toivo Tulev and Helena Tulve. He is a co-founder of the Oslo-based ensemble +47 and the treasurer of the Periferien nyMusikk Oslo concert series. Starting in 2019, Tze Yeung will chair the Norwegian board of the UNM (Ung Nordisk Musikk) festival for young composers and sound artists in the Nordic countries.
