Jeremy Young is a composer and improviser of concrète electronic tape music from Montreal, Quebec. He is a member of the Montreal-based experimental poetry_sound unit Cloud Circuit, alongside writer Deanna Radford, and the electroacoustic modern classical trio Sontag Shogun. His work makes use of a sine and square wave oscillator system, analog 1/4" tape loops, captured and filtered radio and EMF signal, and foley-inspired sound treatments from amplified surfaces and objects. His primary artistic interests lie in the the notion that both the audio signal and the media on which it is recorded, edited and played back, should equally contribute to the creation of a sonic narrative, an underlying principle of musique concrète. He has performed across Canada, the US, UK, Asia, and Europe.
