卓越 (zhuó yuè), aka. Jerry Zhuo, is a composer from Xiamen, China currently living in Wales. He received a PhD in Music Composition from Cardiff University School of Music. His study was covered by a full studentship and he was supervised by award-wining composer Prof Arlene Sierra.  His recent artistic activity revolves mostly around his continuing research in defining a personal identity out of the prevailing postmodern Chinese culture he was born into, and a negotiation with ‘Chineseness’ — the cultural stereotype — that he started to encounter after moving to the UK 12 years ago.
