Texu Kim’s compositional outlook reflects a beautiful blend of positivity and curiosity in the world around him. Much of his music involves his personal fascination with everyday objects and sounds. In these works his unique blend of humor and technique comes together to create works such as "Bounce!!" and "Shake It!!," inspired respectively by bouncing basket balls and a coffee grinder. Texu’s music reflects his unique background. His studies in chemistry have provided him with an analytical but tangibly grounded perspective. As a western music composer from a non-western country, his natural interest in ethno-music includes Northern Indian, Balinese Gamelan music, and the different music traditions of his native South Korea. Texu’s most influential experiences include his studies with the widely recognized composer Unsuk Chin and his work with ensembles including Ensemble Intercontemporain of France, Ensemble Modern of Germany and Alarm Will Sound in the USA.
