Roger approaches music with the understanding that it is a language. By playing with expectations, rhythm and impulses, tension and release, music bypasses the specificity of words and reaches straight into the human psyche. Shaped by a background in classical form and orchestration, modern compositional techniques, and jazz harmony, Roger’s original compositions and arrangements ask questions, take journeys, and describe sentiments.
His current projects include his first recording project titled: First Day, which showcases his own compositions. The record First Day will be available on CD Baby on October 18th.
Roger Kim is a UC Berkeley graduate with Bachelor Degrees in Music and Business. In the music department he studied under Brian Pardo and Myra Melford.
