Ryan Jor­dan (born Ip­swich, 1983) is a UK based elec­tronic artist work­ing with self made in­stru­ments and tools for live in­ter­ac­tive per­for­mance. His work is fo­cused on move­ment and the phys­i­cal­ity in live elec­tronic per­for­mance, noise and un­der­ground music, hyp­notic trance states, and D.i.Y cul­ture. He has per­formed and pre­sented his work in­ter­na­tion­ally in a wide range of venues from art and aca­d­e­mic in­sti­tu­tions to derelict ware­houses and squats.  In 2006 he started noise=noise, a spo­radic ex­per­i­men­tal per­for­mance event, which has show­cased many artists, aca­d­e­mics, hack­ers, dancers, and per­form­ers rang­ing from the in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed to the un­der­ground lurker. He di­rected A10Lab in 2010 which was an ex­per­i­men­tal au­dio­vi­sual per­for­mance lab­o­ra­tory ex­plor­ing free and open-source soft and hard­ware. Ryan has a BA Sonic Arts from Mid­dle­sex Unitver­sity (2007) and a Dis­tinc­tion in MFA Com­pu­ta­tional Stu­dio Arts from Gold­smiths (2009). He is cur­rently un­der­tak­ing a PhD at the Music Tech­nol­ogy and In­no­va­tion Re­search Cen­tre at De Mont­fort Uni­ver­sity.

Ryan Jordan is an electronic noise artist whose work explores noise and a literal approach to DIY electronics. Recent projects include the creation of crude amplifiers, transistors, diodes and solar cells constructed with raw metals and mineral ores to generate sound and music. He is currently working on the construction of magnetic audio tape using specific minerals naturally occurring in the earth. Another aspect of Jordan’s work is the focus on the human psyche and cognition and how we are connected to and experience the world and technology.
