Andrew Jordan

From Roswell, NM, my current artistic interests include: instability and unpredictability, stochastic systems, microscopic sounds, and electro-acoustic improvisation, as well as composing algorithmic systems utilizing non-musical data as artistic material. My list of interests will probably be different by next week: there exist far too many reasons for bewilderment and curiosity to allow myself to be limited to one brief snapshot.
