Bonnie Jones

Bonnie Jones is a Korean-American writer, improvising musician, and performer working primarily with electronic music and text. Born in 1977 in South Korea she was raised by dairy farmers in New Jersey, and currently resides in Baltimore, MD. Bonnie creates improvised and composed text-sound performances that explore the fluidity and function of electronic noise (field recordings, circuit bending) and text (poetry, found, spoken, visual). She is interested in how people perceive, “read” and interact with these sounds and texts given our current technological moment.As an improviser she re-purposes digital delay pedals as circuit-bent electronic instruments, directly playing the exposed circuit boards with her hands to produce raw, often chaotic electronic sounds. Her multimedia performances (in collaboration or solo) incorporate recorded, spoken, and visual text , field recordings, and electronic sound. The work draws heavily on her background as a poet and uses improvisation to explore new forms of writing "off-the-page.” Jones has performed in the US, Europe and Asia, and has appeared in the Christian Marclay Festival at the Whitney (NYC,) ErstQuake Festival (NYC), No Idea Festival (TX), Cha’ ak’ ab Paaxil Festival (Mexico), and High Zero Festival (MD). Jones has received several awards and recognitions including a Fulbright Fellowship, Grants from Meet the Composer , and artist residencies at STEIM (Amsterdam, NL) and Q02 (Brussels, BE.) She has been a visiting artist at Wesleyan College, University of Maryland, Dartington College at the University of Falmouth (UK), and has conducted workshops on electronic music, improvisation, and technology. She was also curator and co-founder of the Transmodern Festival, and curator / organizer of the Los Solos Series (a performance series presenting solo works of female artists). Jones is currently an MFA candidate at Bard College’s Milton Avery School for Fine Arts
