Born in South Korea in 1983, Donghoon Shin
lives in London, where he is pursuing a PhD in composition under the supervision of Sir George Benjamin at the King’s College. He studied composition at Seoul National University with Sukhi Kang and Uzong Choe, and with Julian Anderson at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. He also privately studied with Unsuk Chin.
Being an admirer of J. L. Borges’ works, Donghoon Shin finds inspiration in the interconnectedness of the matters: “I was completely entranced by his writing and the idea of intertextuality. […] Through Borges‘ works, I’ve learnt how to mix and juxtapose disparate things to create a new meaning.”
Donghoon Shin won prestigious awards such as the Royal Philharmonic Society Composition Prize in 2016.
Donghoon Shin composes a new chamber orchestra piece for the Karajan Academy of the Berliner Philharmoniker and the conductor Peter Eötvös (December 2019), and a new work for orchestra commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
In 2019, Donghoon Shin has been selected as one of the laureates of ricordilab.
