Alan Chan is a multi-faceted composer with a goal to break away from the rigid definitions of style and identity in order to create his own. His musical creation often involves collaboration – an attempt to build a community of artists from different disciplines during the process. He has received recognitions from ASCAP, American Composers Forum (ACF), Percussive Arts Society (PAS) and Composers and Authors Society of Hong Kong (CASH). Chan is the co-founder and program director of Gateway Performance Series in Los Angeles, which features innovative programs with artists around the country and abroad. He is currently a member of the BMI Jazz Composers Workshop in New York City and a member of the PAS Composition Contest Committee. His music is available from HoneyRock Publishing, and recordings from Capstone and ERM labels.
