YVETTE JANINE JACKSON (50’)
Yvette Janine Jackson is a composer and installation artist who brings attention to historical events and social issues through her radio operas. She developed a tactile approach to composition as a student at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center during its transition into the Computer Music Center and blended these experiences with her work as a theatrical sound designer into a narrative style of composition. In 2020, she established the Radio Opera Workshop, a scalable intermedia ensemble, to experiment with sound and narrative performance. Yvette’s work has been presented at Audiorama Festival in Stockholm, TONSPUR_ passage in Wien, Borealis Festival in Seattle, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, and in residence at Elektronmusikstudion EMS in Stockholm. She has presented on soundscape and memory at the Goethe-Institut Boston. Her album Freedom, produced by the Fridman Gallery, debuted as Contemporary Album of the month in the January 2021 issue of “The Guardian” and Destination Freedom won the Giga-Hertz Production Award 2021 presented by ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien and SWR Experimentalstudio. It will be installed in the permanent collection at the International African American Museum in 2022. Yvette is an assistant professor in creative practice and critical inquiry in the department of music and teaches for the Theater, Dance & Media program at Harvard University.
