JESSE SUMMERS is a Boston-based musician and sound artist working with location recordings and digital and analog processing. Situated amid precise electroacoustic fabrications, DIY sound collage, and artists expanding the use of sound, his work approaches listening as a multivalent, embodied practice. Starting with an attentiveness to how technology, the environment, and the human body are imbricated in ever-shifting ways, he treats sound as an incision into the cultural, historical, and geopolitical landscape. Through an uncanny interplay of urban, industrial, residential, and nocturnal sources, converging with a range of digital mutations, he renders elusive and alien landscapes through sound.
