I am a composer, performer, and producer of progressive acoustic and electroacoustic music. My music is characterized by disjunct, interlocking rhythms; extended harmonies and angular melodies; glitch and soundscape textures; and gradual, additive development. I am a vigorous advocate for musical pluralism and draw inspiration from a smattering of musical influences, including indie and alternative rock, jazz, progressive metal, hip-hop, and EDM.

An avid performer of contemporary music, I compose for and play piano in the brain-funk band Emergency Stopping Only.

For me as a teacher, it is vital to help instill in my students a love for all sorts of music. I am an exceptionally patient teacher, and I aim to be encouraging at all times. It is extremely important to me that my students feel supported and empowered to achieve their highest musical aspirations.

About Jared K.

Brief intro:
I am a composer, pianist, computer musician, and producer with an omnivorous appetite for music of any style or genre. I am an avid educator, and it is my goal as a teacher to help instill in my students a drive to achieve their highest musical aspirations.

A little more info:
I am a composer and performer of progressive acoustic and electroacoustic music. My music is characterized by disjunct, interlocking rhythms; extended harmonies and angular melodies; glitch and soundscape textures; and gradual, additive development. I am a vigorous advocate for musical pluralism and draw inspiration from a wide variety of musical influences, including indie and alternative rock, funk, jazz, minimalism and post-minimalism, progressive metal, hip-hop, and EDM. An avid performer of contemporary music, I co-direct, compose for, and play keyboard in the brain-funk band Emergency Stopping Only. I currently pursue dual Master of Music degrees in Composition and Intermedia Music Technology at the University of Oregon School of Music and Dance, where I study with composers David Crumb, Robert Kyr, and Jeffery Stolet.
