Film producer and musician, Aven Yap (ATCL) is a self-taught composer praised as ‘inventive’ and ‘vividly evocative’. He discovered his talent for writing music in his teenage years, rearranging folk songs and well-known tunes for solo piano, and thoroughly analysing and researching the music of 20th century composers such as Steve Reich and Igor Stravinsky as well as other prominent composers in music history. Aven Yap has written works in most musical forms – especially piano and instrumental. In recent years, his music has become more deeply influenced by his love for the Brisbane city which he has taken an interest since 2011.
Aven Yap’s piano works have won multiple awards across Southeast Queensland including Best Composition in the Murwillumbah Festival of Performing Arts and the MTAQ Gold Coast Composer’s Competition. He was also a short-listed Featured Composer and Artist for Creative Generation 2014 and more recently, the world premiere of his “Five Ambiences for Solo Piano and Soundscapes” (2014) received a standing ovation.
Also a diploma-level pianist, Aven Yap has been playing piano for over a decade and has been praised for his “masterful authority of the piano”, “unshaken pianistic refinement” and “deep musical understanding”. Aven Yap has won multiple awards in competitions in Southeast Queensland and New South Wales.
