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 creates “non-linear” sound installations that use technology to modulate sonic and embodied experience of a gallery or repurposed functional space.

He holds degrees in music theory and composition from the University of Kansas and Bowling Green State University and currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland.
