Profile: Jason Sloan
Jason Sloan Exploring sound, texture and atmosphere, the music of Jason Sloan is smooth and spacious. It opens up and fills ambient areas with the slow motion of sustaining chords and a gradual metamorphosis of timbre. By adding the elements of rhythm and melody, his works provide a surprisingly deeper examination of the interior landscape. With layers of reverberant e-bow guitar over sampled percussion loops or cloud-soft synth pads churning alongside digital-age beats, Sloan's musical ideas posses a shimmering exuberance. Expanding beyond the uniformity of structure found on his early drone-like works, the energy of the new fuller arrangements is subdued by dreamy atmospherics. Sparking then smoldering, his music plays out across an ever-changing landscape - and deserves praise for aiming so high.

Jason Sloan has performed live at The Gatherings Concert Series in Philadelphia as well as on the radio. Please see below for photos from his live in-studio STAR'S END radio concerts.
