Patrick Huang

PhD Candidate
Office: TC 336

Patrick graduated from SOAS University of London (yes, the other London!) with a master’s degree in Ethnomusicology. He then moved to Canada for his prospective PhD research at Western. His research focuses on the transmission and reception of Ancient Greek music knowledge between Late Antiquity and the Early Medieval Period. Patrick is actively engaged in joint research, notably the comparative study between Ancient Chinese and Graeco-Latin musical system, as both cultures associate music with mathematics, philosophy, astronomy and political order (a.k.a. ‘musica universalis‘).

Besides, Patrick is also a ‘for-fun’ composer and arranger; he has mainly composed soundtracks for indie games and singers.
