Zhao Jiajing (b. China) is a composer, sound artist, and new media artist based in London. In 2022 he graduated from the Royal College of Art with a degree in Information Experience Design - Sound Design.

Zhao Jiajing works across multiple disciplines, including spatial sound, new media, performance, and installation. Key themes of his work include time, consciousness, chaos, and surveillance. He approaches sound as spatial-temporal portals leading to many possible worlds. With extensive use of field recordings, sound collage, and granular synthesis techniques, he creates sonic experiences that trigger cross-sensory imaginations. Probabilities and uncertainties are the kernel of his practice. He employs chaotic algorithms and cultivates generative systems for his artistic creations to sprout into unforeseen variations autonomously.

His works have been shown at various venues, including Old Street Gallery, EiS Immersive Audio Conference, and IRCAM, etc. Since 2019, he has been collaborating with pioneering theater groups, performers, and installation artists, producing music and sound for their projects.
