Ha-Yang Kim creates new music as a composer and cellist, regularly collaborating with ensembles and artists in festivals and performance venues throughout the world. Drawing from a breadth of western classical music, American experimentalism, rock, electronic, noise, avant-improv, to non-western sources, Kim’s music is inspired by acoustic phenomena, ritual ceremonial processes, and characterized by an organic visceral lyricism of sound influenced by the East Asian sense of space and emptiness. Monograph recordings of compositions released on Tzadik Records. Worked with diverse range of artists including Cecil Taylor, Meredith Monk, John Zorn, Beyoncé, Terry Riley, indie rock band The National, Kronos Quartet, Louis Andriessen, and Bang on a Can. Has been Artist-In-Residence at NYC’s Roulette Intermedium and ISSUE Project Room, Harvard, Princeton, Brandeis Universities, Dartmouth College. Grants, awards and fellowships from Jerome Foundation, Hemera Foundation, ASCAP, Meet the Composer, American Music Center, Argosy Foundation. Dedicated to cross-cultural exchange, social transformation, and education, Kim has conducted workshops with Berber youth communities in Morocco, performed at youth detention centers in the Bronx, performed alongside gamelan orchestras in Bali, and performed for the UN Humanitarian Aid Campaign. She teaches music at Cornish College of the Arts.
