Yin Lu is an award-winning screen composer, electronic music producer, singer-songwriter, and orchestrator based in London.

 

Driven by a profound love for blending intricate neo-classical and East-Asian minimalist styles with contemporary electronics, he studied at the Royal College of Music on the Composition for Screen masters course, and graduated with a first class degree in 2021. Notably, his musical journey has earned him prestigious accolades, including an Honorary Mention at the 2020 European Talent Awards and membership in the BAFTA Connect Programme. His screen music garnered praise from Oscar-winning composer Stephen Warbeck. In 2021, he received the endorsement of the Arts Council England for Global Talent, thanks to the recommendation of Oscar-nominated composer Gary Yershon and the Director of the RCM, Colin Lawson.

Specializing in crafting music and soundscapes for diverse visual mediums, Yin has composed scores for a wide array of projects. These include multicultural animated films, documentaries, shorts, feature films, video games, and albums featured in prestigious events like Soundtrack Cologne, Encounters Film Festival, the Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film, the Global Music Awards and Queer East Festival (London), among others. Moreover, his music for visual arts and experimental performances have been showcased in Tate Modern, the Amaryllis Fleming Concert Hall, St John's Waterloo and the Royal Academy of Arts' 250th Anniversary celebrations.

. Born and raised in Guizhou, China, Yin embarked on the musical career in Shanghai in 2013. Having obtained a BA in Chinese Language and Literature from Nanjing University the same year, he moved to Shanghai to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a composer. In Shanghai, he demonstrated excellence as an assistant, composer, orchestrator, music producer, and vocalist. His talent quickly gained recognition in Shanghai's highly developed entertainment industry, earning him the second prize at the Digital Audio Competition at the Shanghai Spring International Music Festival. Collaborating with esteemed artists and composers, Yin established himself as a versatile and sought-after composer and music producer. His compositions and arrangements have been featured in animation, blockbuster feature films, video games, reality TV shows, and live performances. In 2018, seeking a deeper understanding of music and its philosophy, he left Shanghai to study at the Royal College of Music in the UK. Afterwards, he chose to stay in London in pursuit of multicultural collaboration and freedom of expression.

Since 2022, deeply influenced by the UK's electronic music scene and the artistic advocacy for civil liberties among the Hong Kong diaspora, Yin began developing the alt-electronic virtual band Dopamine Released and engaging in a singer-songwriter project under the stage name Yinfi, advocating for human rights and artistic freedom.
