Jason Wright

Residence: Wellington, New Zealand

Currently studying Composition in Sonic Arts in his fourth year at the New Zealand School of Music (Wellington), Jason has begun a series of works that fuses Acousmatic music practices with conventional instruments. His goal is to try and retain emotional involvement for the listener by having something recognisable, while also creating new sounds and unexpected tangents for the listener to follow. This music tries to create an oppurtunity for the listener to follow any abstractions made from a conventional sound to something more cryptic. In this way the listener gains more of an understanding of the music itself. Apart from his fixed media work, Jason has been involved in installations presented at both Victoria University Campus and the Museum of Wellington.
