Drummer Chloe Kim (Yeajee Kim, 김예지; MMus Performance Research. she/her) is one of Australia's foremost improvising musicians.
Chloe constantly performs alongside legendary musicians, and her strength as an artist also emanates in the setting of solo drum set performances.
Since 2018, Chloe has performed solo at the Sydney Opera House, Powerhouse Museum, Art Gallery of New South Wales, and Museum of Old and New Art. So far in 2023, she performed a live response to Do Ho Suh's Staircase-III installation at the Museum of Contemporary Art for Sydney Festival and composed/performed a score in the forthcoming documentary The Independents about the 2022 Australian Federal Election. In February, Chloe performed 100 hours of solo drumming across the 10 days of the MONA FOMA festival in Hobart.
In 2022 UK label Phantom Limb released Chloe's 3rd solo drum album
I Love and Embrace, which featured on BBC radio multiple times (including pre-recorded and live interviews). She was a soloist in Jeremy Rose's APRA Art Music Award-winning work Disruption! The Voice of Drums, which featured at the Sydney Festival (2021) and Melbourne International Jazz Festival (2022).
Chloe wishes to describe her drumming by citing one of the lines from her research: "a propulsive quality in drumming performance characterised by a high level of intensity and precise execution of the musical details afforded by physical agility".
