Jenny Graf creates harsh, hypnotic landscape of sound combining hacked up song structures with outbursts of staccatic noise. Largely known for her experimentation in live improvised sound performances using tactile, non-conventional instruments, Gräf has been an integral part of the experimental subcultures in Chicago, Baltimore and Copenhagen where she now lives and works.


But her work also includes long-term collaborative sound projects designed for women with Alzheimer’s in order to research and expand understanding of memory and identity through sounds, as well as participatory sound compositions that subtly direct the audience’s awareness to their own complicity in a performance work.

She performs and exhibits sound installations throughout Europe, Canada and the U.S. Her recordings are on labels such as Load, 5rc, Atavistic, Hanson, Utech, Troubleman in addition to many self-released titles.
