Jen Boyd

Jen Boyd is a sound artist living in Vallejo, California. She spends time recording sounds in her environment and then arranges them into layered soundscapes. In these pieces, some sounds unfold naturally while others are processed. Jen uses contact microphones to explore the textures and timbres in trees and other found objects. Many of her soundscapes seek to give depth to these delicate sounds. Although her work mostly relies on 'natural' sounds she uses a wide variety of sound sources to paint sonic pictures for the listener. Jen holds a BFA in composition and music technology from CalArts and a MFA in electronic music and recording media from Mills College.

Boyd performed at the Fifteenth Annual Activating the Medium Festival in 2012.
