Jason Charney’s work as a composer addresses the connections among scientific phenomena, sensory perception, and performative gesture.  He writes music for both instruments and electronic media, often combining them. He is also an active electroacoustic performer, both as a soloist and with instrumentalists. 

As a sound artist, Jason is interested in cultivating sound as a critical and non-linear medium in gallery or site-specific installations.

He holds degrees in music theory and composition from the University of Kansas and Bowling Green State University, where he teaches Music Technology courses.
