Deep Listening II

Another unusual boundary-smashing evening of intentional listening

Sound poetry, improvisation, and new music with Jaap Blonk.


Jaap Blonk is a self-taught Dutch composer, performer and poet. He went to university for mathematics and musicology but did not finish those studies. In the late 1970s he took up saxophone and started to compose music. A few years later he discovered his potential as a vocal performer, at first in reciting poetry and later on in improvisations and his own compositions. For almost two decades the voice was his main means for the discovery and development of new sounds. He is currently on an extensive 2019 worldwide.

Sound Artist and integrated media performer, Justin Boyd.


San Antonio’s own, explores formats that unite sounds with visual forms. Both a conceptual artist and DJ, he approaches each project much like a recording artist developing a concept album and often explores the theme or idea using techniques common to music production and DJ culture: dubbing, splicing, and mixing, primarily using analog audio technology. He has an impressive educational background and an extensive body of work in new music and sound scape performance. http://www.justintaylorboyd.com/
Justin is currently the chair of the Sculpture and Integrated Media Studio of the Southwest School of Art and hosts the KRTU Radio: DubJangleBumpandDrone.
