Kim Rivera

Kim Rivera is currently an undergraduate student pursuing a BM in Composition in the School of Music at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, and currently studies composition with Huck Hodge. Raised on the island of Puerto Rico, Kim’s early cultivation of music was through the years of violin performance and music theory at the Conservatorio de Música de Puerto Rico.  In her late teens, her relocation to the U.S. presented an opportunity and an interest in Computer Science and Mathematics, which took her away from music for more than 10 years; however, the call of music was always beckoning and she could not stay away for good.  She was selected to participate in a workshop with Rebecca Saunders, and has had lessons with several composers, including Brian Ferneyhough, Hans Thomalla, and Germán Toro-Pérez.  At the UW, she also studied digital sound synthesis with Juan Pampin and Josh Parmenter, and studied viola with Melia Watras.
