Jordan Munson, Music technology
Jordan Munson is a sound and video artist whose work explores memory, ephemera, and our relationship to technology. Often utilizing found media and experimental instruments, his compositions employ layered textures to build subtly changing landscapes. Munson has performed alongside artists such as R. Luke DuBois, Bora Yoon, and Nico Muhly. With collaborators Scott Deal and Michael Drews, he is a member of the electroacoustic ensemble Big Robot. Founded in 2009, the group creates media-enriched art and music, interweaving aesthetic expression with computer interactivity.
Institutions such as the University of Kentucky, the University of Alaska at Fairbanks, and the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) have premiered his multimedia works. Munson’s video art has shown worldwide, including at the Musicacoustica Festival in Beijing, the New World Center, and The Phillips Collection.
In 2017, Munson was the recipient of the Presidential Fellowship in Digital Arts and Human Values from Wabash College as well as the Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship from the Arts Council of Indianapolis.
Munson is a Senior Lecturer in Music and Arts Technology at IUPUI, as well as an associate of the Donald Tavel Arts and Technology Research Center. He holds degrees from Indiana University in Indianapolis (M.S.M.T.) and the University of Kentucky (B.M.).
