Jasmine Guffond

Jasmine Guffond

is an artist and composer focused on electronic composition across music and art contexts. Working at the interface of social, political and technical infrastructures her practice spans live performance, recording, sound installation and custom made browser plug-in. Through the sonification of data she addresses the potential of sound to engage with contemporary political questions. Interested in providing an audible presence for phenomena that lies beyond human perception, via the sonification of facial recognition algorithms, global networks, or internet tracking cookies she questions what it means for our personal habits to be traceable, and for our identities, choices and personalities to be reduced to streams of data. Her music draws upon influences from experimental electronic, drone, techno and avant-garde. Working with abstract sound as much as traditional musical forms she creates a sound that holds emotive power and musicality, transforming data into deeply engaging compositions. She has recorded music for the Staubgold, Sonic Pieces and Karl Records labels.
