Jerry Yue Zhuo is a composer-performer and music researcher
with a rising reputation in the UK and China.
Having grown up in an increasingly postmodern society in China, Zhuo produces works that question the authenticity of personal identity. He often employs a philosophical approach in conceiving musical structure, taking inspiration from his experience in electroacoustic performance, improvisation, and audience engagement.
Audiences have described Zhuo's compositional outcomes as ‘evocative’ and ‘deeply personal’. He has been selected to participate in music festivals and composition projects worldwide, including Tŷ Cerdd, Vale of Glamorgan Festival, Valencia International Performance Festival, impuls and Chen Qigang Music Academy. As a conductor and promoter of contemporary music and arts, Zhuo has become increasingly recognised in China, for which he has received several press interviews, including one by the China Daily.
He currently holds the following positions:
◆ Lecturer in Composition at Cardiff University.
◆ Co-founder of Pavilion Ensemble (We are recruiting — click for detail).
◆ Co-conductor of Xiamen Foreign Language School Orchestra.
