Jace Clayton

http://www.jaceclayton.com/

Jace Clayton is an artist based in New York, also known for his work as DJ /rupture. He is currently writing a book on music for FSG. His most recent project, Enkutatash እንቁጣጣሽ, debuted in Washington D.C. on September 11th, the Ethiopian New Year (Ethiopia uses its own calendar system), and featured a choir singing a musical rendition of the Homeland Security color-coded Threat Level changes superimposed with modified East African harvest songs for lute and voice.


Jace Clayton lives and works in New York City. Clayton uses an interdisciplinary approach to focus on how sound, memory, and public space interact, with an emphasis on low-income communities and the global South. A rigorous conceptual framework grounds each project it moves across areas as diverse as software design, sculptural objects, or performance. Recent projects include Sufi Plug Ins, a free suite of music software-as-art, based on non-western conceptions of sound and alternative interfaces; and The Julius Eastman Memorial Dinner, a touring performance piece for grand pianos, electronics, and voice.
