Jon Leidecker


Born in Washington D.C. in 1970, and residing in California since 1983, Jon Leidecker is a self-taught composer and improviser, with a long-standing interest in collaboration, collage and mechanical sounds —or any music which seeks to express more than the self. His lectures on electronic music have been presented at Mills, Stanford, Oxford, UC Berkeley, Peabody Conservatory, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, who commissioned his nine hour podcast on the history of sampling in music, »Variations«.
