Jazer Giles

Jazer Giles is an artist and composer living in Los Angeles, California. His video work has been described as “rich with structure and rules, but also full of a sort of wrongness that signifies art from a human” in Clash Magazine and “wonderfully glitchy and geometric” in I CARE IF YOU LISTEN on the American Composers Forum. Multiple music video and live performance collaborations with London based electronic musician Max Cooper have taken his video art from the Acropolis to Tokyo.

As a composer he has collaborated extensively with instrumentalists and choreographers and had his audio/video works featured at SEAMUS, Max Expo ’74, and the Five College New Music Festival. Recent collaborations with Barbie Diewald were awarded grants from NEFA and MASS Cultural Council, presented domestically and internationally at venues such as Jacob’s Pillow, Bates Dance Festival, Ponderosa Dance, and New Dance Alliance.

Jazer holds undergraduate degrees in music and physics from Skidmore College and a graduate degree in music composition from the University of Massachusetts. He is currently a PhD candidate in the Media Arts and Technology Program at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
