Jens Brand (DE) is a composer, musician, audio-visual artist and curator.
Jens Brand studied at the Münster Academy of Fine Arts. In 1991 he turned to experimental music and Klangkunst under the influence of Phill Niblock and his experiences with performances at Het Apollohuis (Akio Suzuki, Junko Wada and Paul Panhuysen). Today he lives in Berlin, and also works as a curator.
His pieces can appear as concerts, performances or installations. Recent works have ended up being mixtures of these genres, developed as logical and absurd games between the audience and the artist. His experiments with everything that can be considered to be art are not supposed to establish a belief or truth, but try to offer a fruitful soil for research, communication and progressive failure. Pieces used in the collaboration with Sam Ashley, such as Motors and Styrofoam, Mini Fan Music, PIANO or RATCHETS appear as short duration installations that evoke something Jens considers to be "electronic music without speakers."
