Jaime Reis (n. 1983) es un compositor portugués.

Ha estudiado Composición y Música Electrónica con João Pedro Oliveira, Emmanuel Nunes y Karlheinz Stockhausen. Ha continuado su formación realizando un doctorado en Etnomusicología en la Universidad NOVA de Lisboa.

La música de Reis se inspira en su interés por la investigación en las ciencias naturales y su atención constante en las tradiciones – específicamente en la espiritualidad – de la música asiática.  

Una de sus áreas de interés son las formas dinámicas, fuerzas y flujos de la música. Explora los caminos polifónicos espaciales a partir de sistemas sonoros inmersivos en forma de copla.

Otra característica notable en su música es la presencia de conceptos complejos que sostienen la construcción de sus obras, evitando desviar la atención de su sensible belleza. Las ideas se desarrollan como funciones ocultas que, a pesar de su rigor intelectual, generan formas musicales voluptuosas.

Reis es profesor de composición y de música electroacústica en la Escuela Superior de Música de Lisboa (ESML) e investigador en el Instituto de Etnomusicología de la Universidad NOVA de Lisboa. Es director artístico del Festival DME y del Lisboa Incomum, donde se desarrolla una intensa actividad de pesquisa y de creación de la música contemporánea.

Su música ha sido mundialmente interpretada por ensambles y músicos como Christophe Desjardins, Pierre-Yves Artaud, Aida-Carmen Soanea, Ana Telles, Ensemble Fractales, Ensemble Horizonte, Grupo de Música Contemporânea de Lisboa, Machina Lírica, Orchestre de Flûtes Français y Aleph Gitarren quartett.
