Reus Jonathan

Jonathan Reus is an electronic musician and artist-engineer who uses an archeo- folk (archeological-folkloric) approach to new music and media performance. His work is cross-disciplinary and research-based, remixing concepts and cultural objects from multiple fields of music, mathematics, scientific epistemology and fantasy into open-ended retellings and musical frameworks. Jonathan is co-founder of the instrument inventors initiative (iii) in The Hague, and is active as a curator (STEIM, Transmediale, Stroom Den Haag). He received a W. J. Fulbright fellowship for his research into new digital instruments for music, and has developed art-humanities curricula on themes such as live coding, hardware design-as-composition, computational ontology and software studies.
