An active composer, Patrick contributed to the score for three feature films (The Bounty, This Is Not What I Expected, and Chasing The Dragon), and has also composed music for television programs and theatrical works for Radio & Television Hong Kong and Hong Kong Dance Company. Venturing into music other than jazz, he received a full scholarship from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Music and Dance Fund and is pursuing his Master’s degree at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, furthering his studies in traditional music. In September 2021, Patrick and his jazz group performed for the festival “The Present – Jazz Festival of an Inward Journey”, part of LCSD’s “Jazz Up” series, and premiered works that blended jazz and traditional music, a fruition of his research and studies.

In the pop music field, he is a frequent collaborator with RubberBand, and their works together have received wide acclaim. The album Easy, which they co-produced in 2012, was awarded the prestigious ‘Album of The Year’ by Commercial Radio Hong Kong. They have also won ‘Best Performance by a Band’ two times at the CASH Golden Sail Music Awards. In 2020, Patrick again co-produced and arranged for RubberBand’s album i, which featured his big band arrangements. Patrick also served as the pianist for Hong Kong’s foremost artist Eason Chan’s worldwide tour ‘Eason Says C’mon In’.

Patrick performs his compositions with his own big band as well as others abroad: he has been invited to perform with Taipei Jazz Orchestra at the Chiayi City International Band Festival in Taiwan, and Kyoto Composers Jazz Orchestra in Osaka, Japan, both times as guest conductor and pianist. His own big band, Patrick Lui Jazz Orchestra, appeared as the opening act for the 2019 Hong Kong Jazz Marathon with Will Vinson as special guest. Patrick Lui Jazz Orchestra was invited for three consecutive years to be one of the headliners of the Freespace Jazz Festival (2019-2021) hosted by the West Kowloon Cultural District, performing sold-out and critically acclaimed shows. On the international front, the orchestra was invited by the Jazz Education Network in the US to perform at their 2021 annual conference.

Patrick’s debut big band album, Sonder, was released in 2020. The album was recorded in New York City at the renowned Systems Two Recording Studio. The band consisted of all New York-based jazz musicians, featuring Alex Sipiagin on two songs. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by two-time Grammy award winner Mike Marciano, and distributed by Sony music.

Patrick participated in Hong Kong Arts Festival in 2021 as band leader and performer for the project Playground as part of the No Limits series, featuring a world premiere of a composition by Ng Cheuk-yin.
