Through his chamber music, choral music, and arts leadership, Korean-American composer and cellist Solomon Kim (b. 2001) explores theatricality, electro-acoustic idioms, and composer-performer-audience relationships. His music has been performed in Japan and the United States, with premieres by the American School in Japan choirs, students at the Heifetz International Music Institute, and Emory University’s Department of Music.

Solomon’s music is defined by explorations of electronic-acoustic timbres/textures, theatricality, and interdisciplinary collaboration. His choral and chamber music has been performed in Japan and the United States, with premieres by the American School in Japan choirs, students at the Heifetz International Music Institute, and musicians of Emory University’s Department of Music.
