Larry SHUEN is a Hong Kong composer, sound artist, and media 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, and media art, through which Shuen expresses his thoughts on life and surroundings.

Shuen has been active in theatre production as a composer and sound designer. In 2022, he was the sound designer for Six Mouths, an annual production by Unlock Dancing Plaza. In this three-hour performance, Shuen customized six distinct sound systems and sound designs, each tailored to the individual performances of the six artists. Shuen has also collaborated closely with numerous choreographers, including Ong Young Lock, Yau Ka Hei, Chan Wai Lok, Hui Ka Chun, Andy Lee, and Albert Gracia, sound designing for their theatre works, interactive choreography, dance films, and community dance projects.

Shuen’s recently involved multidisciplinary work Goin’ Goin’ (2022), a collaboration with artist Nga Yan Cheng, explores a superimposed relationship between sound, virtual navigation, and an exercising body. Shuen's versatility as an artist-performer extends to his appearances in local music and experimental sound events. In recent years, he has been frequently invited by West Kowloon, Hong Kong for experimental music performances.

As an educator, Shuen has been giving classes on music making, composition, contemporary music, and sound art to students ranging from children to professionals. He is the artist-teacher of the Push The Envelope sound art program curated by Contemporary Musiking Hong Kong. Additionally, Shuen currently holds the position of part-time visiting lecturer at the School of Design, Polytechnic University Hong Kong, where he teaches a master's level course on Sound Design and Technology. 

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.
