Burke Jam is an artist, composer, curator and educator. His recent work in performance, installation and recorded media explores sound as intervention–questioning and subverting perceptual coherence and relationships with physical place. His research engages the intersection of field recording, composition, acoustic ecology and the Anthropocene. Following the completion of his MFA in 2013 at the University of Montana, Jam received a Fulbright Grant to Iceland researching environmental sound and methods of listening. Jam performs and exhibits internationally, and works as the Director of Digital Facilities and Instructor of Music and Art in the College of the Arts at Portland State University.
