PAULINE KIM HARRIS, aka PK or Pauline Kim is a Grammy- nominated violinist and composer. The youngest student to have ever been accepted into the studio of legendary violinist Jascha Heifetz, she has since appeared throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia as soloist, collaborator and music director. Known for her work with classical avant-punk violin duo String Noise, she has toured extensively with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and continues to collaborate with leading new music ensembles in New York City. Pauline Kim was the first Music Director for the Bill T. Jones/ Arnie Zane Dance Company and has been the featured artist for choreographers David Parker and Pam Tanowitz. As a composer, Pauline searches for a tactile connection between memory and sound. Her music creates a multi-dimensional sonic matrix through composition, transporting the listener to an alternate co-existence. She introduces an environment that alters the listener’s emotional identity to what they are experiencing. Most recently, Pauline Kim was an associate artist at the Atlantic Center for the Arts and had her debut residency at the Stone – New School. In addition to being a fellow at the Mabel Residency, a new work commissioned by the Stony Brook Contemporary Chamber Players will premiere this fall. Her most recent work 100 Thimbles In A Box for String Noise x Syrinx (acoustic synthesizer) premiered at Roulette in June 2019 along with an innovative new work Sparkle for 10 Tap and 8 Pointe Shoes which was developed and premiered by David Parker’s The Bang Group in February 2019, to be set to movement and space in 2020. Pauline’s debut album, Heroine — a reimagining of the Bach Chaconne and Ockeghem’s Deo Gratias will be released on Sono Luminus with worldwide distribution on September 27, 2019.
