Stuttgart-based composer Jaeduk Kim explores the dynamic interplay between instrumental and electronic elements within shared sonic spaces. His compositions craft immersive soundscapes by blending diverse acoustic textures with pitch, inviting listeners to experience the visceral qualities of sound — its timbre, color, mass, and weight.

Jaeduk Kim holds a Master of Music degree from the Haute école de musique de Genéve, where he studied composition under the tutelage of Michael Jarrell,           Luis Naôn, and Giblert Nouno, generously supported by the Hans Wilsdorf Rolex Foundation. He earned his Bachelor's degree in composition and orchestral conducting from the Korea National University of Arts. Currently, he is enrolled in the Konzert-Examen program at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln, mentored by Miroslav Srnka, supported by the Deutschland Stipendium.

His distinguished performances include collaborations with prestigious ensembles such as Ensemble Modern, Ensemble Musikfabrik, Barcelona Modern Ensemble, Klangforum Wien, Divertimento ensemble, Ensemble Schallfeld, NEC Ensemble, Les percussions de Strasbourg and Ensemble Timf as well as acclaimed orchestras like the Korean National Symphony Orchestra and the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Notable premieres of his work are scheduled for 2024, including performances at 'Ircam- Manifeste' in Paris, France, featuring Haesun Kang from Ensemble Intercontemporain, and at 'La Biennale di Venezia' in Venice, Italy.

In addition to his composition endeavors, Jaeduk Kim has served as an arranger for the Korean National Police Orchestra and the Korean Broadcasting System (KBS). His compositional influences include luminaries such as Clara Iannotta, Franck Bedrossian, Ramon Lazkano, Luca Francesconni, Unsuk Chin, and others.
