Singaporean composer Ong Ping Din (b. 2001) strives to create music that transcends genres and cultures, as he reflects on his cultural and musical identity. He is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Music (Composition) at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music under the tutelage of Associate Professor Peter Ivan Edwards and Dr Tan Yuting.


As a pianist and active erhu performer, Ping Din’s music is largely influenced by his dual background in Western classical music and traditional Chinese music. Having grown up in a multicultural society, he also draws his musical inspirations from the rich tapestry of Singapore’s diverse ethnic music.

Ping Din is constantly seeking fresh approaches and sounds to unify and expand his musical and cultural expressions. His recent eclectic output explores various mediums and approaches, including electroacoustic music, spectralism, algorithmic composition and intercultural ensembles.


Ping Din’s works have been performed by Les éclats du son, Nina Janßen-Deinzer, Carolin Ralser, Christoph Wichert and the Straits Ensemble, to name a few. His work Propagations (2022) for reed quintet received a special mention by the Atlantic Reed Consort at the 15th Calefax Composers Competition.
