Adrian Lo had an early introduction to music, learning the piano and violin from a young age. Growing up in Hong Kong, then later Oxford, he immersed himself in playing all kinds of classical music from orchestral music to choral music, and chamber music. Today, Adrian Lo works as a musician, composer, and documentary filmmaker.
In 2015, Adrian made his first documentary films, winning the London Lift-Off Film Festival with ‘A Way of Life’, and the First Prize at ‘Switch On Your Creativity’ at the Milan Expo with ‘A Portrait of Sun Wah Kee’.
In 2016, Adrian released his debut EP titled “Absentee”. A solo project through and through, it was a record written and produced entirely by himself. He has since performed live at Clockenflap Music Festival, MacPherson Stadium in Hong Kong, and Feierwerk in Munich, Germany.
2017 was a productive year in filmmaking with the short documentaries 'Prayer for Peace', 'Cheongsam: Lost & Found', 'James', and 'Tai Kwun' (still in production). This year, Adrian is based in Berlin, juggling between work in post-production sound at Studio Babelsberg and producing his new EP titled 'Returnee'.
