Alex Jang (1988–) studied music composition with Christopher Butterfield and John Celona in Victoria B.C., and with Aaron Cassidy and Bryn Harrison in Huddersfield, UK.
He has also studied independently with Linda Catlin Smith, Peter Ablinger, and Michael Finnissy. His most recent music pursues new relationships between sound and silence, as well as new perspectives on the familiar, and has been described as “possessed of strange and unidentifiable energies” (Tim Rutherford-Johnson, The Rambler).
His music has been performed by ensembles and soloists such as Quatuor Bozzini, ELISION Ensemble, ethos collective, Victoria Composers Collective, and Adrian Verdejo, and has been featured at A Place to Listen, SALT New Music Festival, and the Aventa IgNITE! Composers Workshop.
He currently composes, conducts, and plays mandolin for the Victoria Composers Collective and the Place to Listen Ensemble and is programming director at Oak Bay Music.
