Travis Johns

Travis Johns (b. 1983) is a composer and sound artist currently active in the United States and Central America. Using processed field recordings, prepared instruments and homebuilt analog electronics, he creates pieces that blur the lines between performance, composition and installation, often using the environment and biological processes as inspiration for his works. He holds a B.M. in Technology in Music and Related Arts from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, studies conducted with Tom Lopez, as well as an MFA from Mills College in Electronic Music and Recording Media, studies conducted with Chris Brown, Les Stuck and Hilda Paredes. He has participated in residencies at such places as the Atlantic Center for the Arts and RPI’s Create @ iEar, and has had work featured by el Museo Centroamericano de Arte Video (MUCEVI), the Electronic Music Foundation, Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA), and the Bienarte 8 Costa Rican Biennial, and in January 2013 represented Costa Rica alongside visual artist Paulina Velazquez-Solis at the Biennial of the Central American Isthmus, in Panama City, Panama.
