Jon Tulchin

Jon Tulchin is a sound artist/improvisor and archeologist who has collaborated live or on recordings with artists such as Michael Northam, Francisco Lopez, Jeph Jerman, Mike Shannon, Steve Barsotti, Jacob Koller, Lori Ohtani, and Dale Lloyd. Jon works with contact mics, found objects, field recordings, invented acoustic & electric instruments, and turntables. Jon is interested in examining the projection of sound through wood, metals, and air. His use of the microphone along with amplification is similar to the use of a microscope, zooming in on sounds/vibrations which would normally be undetected by the human ear.
