Jaime Reis (n. 1983) est un compositeur Portugais.

Ayant fait des études de Composition et de Musique Électronique avec João Pedro Oliveira, Emmanuel Nunes et Karlheinz Stockhausen, il poursuit un doctorat en Ethnomusicologie à l'Université NOVA de Lisbonne.

La musique de Reis puise dans son intérêt pour la recherche de pointe en sciences naturelles et son attention constante aux traditions – spécifiquement spirituelles – de la musique asiatique.

Les formes dynamiques, les forces et les fluxes dans la musique constituent d’importants centres d'intérêt pour Jaime Reis. Il explore les chemins polyphoniques spatiales à travers des systèmes sonores immersifs en forme de dôme.

Une autre caractéristique marquante de sa musique est la présence de concepts assez complexes qui sous-tendent la construction de ses œuvres, sans pour autant détourner l'attention de leur beauté sensible. Les idées fonctionnent comme des fonctions cachées qui, malgré leur rigueur intellectuelle, engendrent des formes musicales voluptueuses.

Reis est professeur de composition et de musique électroacoustique à l’École Supérieur de Musique de Lisbonne (ESML) et chercheur à l’Institute d’Ethnomusicologie de l'Université NOVA de Lisbonne. Il est directeur artistique du Festival DME et de Lisboa Incomum, où se développe une intense activité de recherche et de création dans le domaine de la musique contemporaine.

Sa musique a été jouée mondialement par ensembles et musiciens tels que 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 et Aleph Gitarren quartett.
