- About me
Ryan Jordan is a UK based sound artist and electronic musician working with DIY Punk electronics, physical performance, Pure Data, and noise. He creates live electronic music/noise scores and performances which incorporate human physical movements and stoboscopic light as their essential foundation.
He is specifically interested in new understandings of music/noise/sound, the creation of new instruments and interfaces, free/libre and open source software (FLOSS), DIY electronic arts and their impact and implications on contemporary society and culture. Sensory Response Systems is his first major project and research into this subject.
Ryan also curates several noise, experimental and computer arts events and concerts in the UK, such as hac... and noise=noise which promote a wide range of artists, from the internationally acclaimed to the underground lurker.
