卓越 (zhuó yuè), aka. Jerry Zhuo, is a composer from Xiamen, China currently living in Wales. He is a PhD Composition candidate in Cardiff University School of Music with full studentship, studying after Dr Arlene Sierra. In his compositions, Jerry looks for a negotiation between the maturity of his self-identity and past influences from ‘Chineseness,’ the stereotypical Chinese culture. His most recent research focuses on the theatricality, language and symbolism within his local culture of Minnan, embracing all different approaches in his composing practice.
