Larry SHUEN is a Hong Kong composer and multidisciplinary artist. Heavily inspired by classical music and composition training, Shuen’s works are often derived from music, sounds, and listening. His artistic practice includes concert music, film scoring, interactive programming, video essay, sound art, installation art, and media art, through which Shuen expresses his thoughts on life and surroundings.

Shuen has been active in theatre production in recent years. He is the sound designer of Six Mouths, an annual production by Unlock Dancing Plaza in 2022. Shuen’s recent multidisciplinary work Goin’ Goin’, a collaboration with artist Cheng Nga Yan, explores a superimposed relationship between sound, virtual navigation, and an exercising body. Shuen also closely exchanges ideas and collaborates with a number of local artists, including Lawrence Lau, Ho-chi So, nnscya (aka. Annisa Cheung), Karen Yu, Joseph Lee, Kenneth Hui Ka Chun, Wai Lok Chan, Human Architects, etc.

Shuen is also keen on choral singing and is a member of The Greeners’ Sound, a local choral society.
