Daryl Jamieson (b.1980, Halifax NS) is based in Zushi and Fukuoka, Japan. After Wilfrid Laurier University, he studied at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the University of York. He then spent a post-doctoral year in Tokyo studying with Jo Kondo. He is currently assistant professor of composition at Kyushu University of Music and is published by Da Vinci Edition and the Canadian Music Centre.
In 2018, he received the Toshi Ichiyanagi Contemporary Prize for the third of his Vanitas trilogy of music theatre pieces. Jamieson's music, written for both western classical and Japanese traditional instruments, is influenced by his study of Nō theatre and Japanese philosophy. It has been performed across Europe, Japan, and North America by many soloists and ensembles.
In addition to composing, he also co-founded the intercultural music theatre company 'atelier jaku', and is active as a researcher, writing on Japanese aesthetics, and contemporary music and spirituality. He has also written music criticism for TEMPO (UK) and Nutida Musik (Sweden), and was the English translator of Jo Kondo's book homo audiens (MusikTexte, 2022).
