Out of a crate of wires and gear, Suitcases brings the noise.
Jason Sloan is a new media artist working from Baltimore, Md. His visual work explores the various aspects of spirituality and it's connection to
life, death, memory, religion and our transitory time on earth. Through his
performances, installations, sound environments and recordings, he examines the need for transcendence beyond the body through a vehicle of visual ritual and auditory stimulation.
When working strictly with audio in a live context, Jason's performances merge colorful ambient textures with gritty walls of sound to create a beautiful blinding soundscape. These environments are created through the use of laptops, guitars, contact mics, live captured and processed sound and found objects.
Sloan received his BFA from Edinboro University in 1996 and his MFA from
Towson University in 1999. He currently teaches adjunct at The Maryland Institute College of Art and full time at Towson University. He has won numerous awards for his performance, installation & video works which have
been exhibited in various galleries throughout the United States & Europe.
His sound works have been released on various labels and can also be heard
on numerous international radio programs.
Jason's most recent work "birthingofahoneyseed" is on display at the 1912
Gallery at Emory and Henry College in Emory, Virginia until December 18. His new cd "a white, bleeding silence" is due for release on slo bor media early
