Janover with Karsh Kale
Jamie Janover is recognized as a true innovator. His considerable creative output includes: being a master of the ancient percussion stringed instrument called the hammered dulcimer, inventing and performing on an instrument he calls the "mini-kit" (a miniature amplified drum kit), playing pyrocussion (fire drums) and creating the RealmsMobile (a recumbent tricycle with the mini-kit attached, enabling him to ride and play drums simultaneously).
Combining the innovations of modern technology with the wisdom of ancient instruments, Janover is making music that has never even been possible until very recently, achieving a creative balance between the acoustic and the electronic to create a unified sound reflective of the polarized nature of modern times.
For many years Jamie has maintained a rigorous touring schedule, alternating between several acts including: LYNX & Janover, ZILLA (w/ Michael Travis from SCI and Aaron Holstein), PRAANG (w/ EOTO & Steve Kimock) and The Everyone Orchestra, among others. He is currently touring solo billed as “Janover”, performing live PA set-style electronic shows using his unique and innovative live rig.
When not playing music, you can find Jamie connecting dots around the world in his extensive travels and collaborations in multiple creative realms including making stunning images as a professional photographer, creating incredible sculptures works using natural found objects and being an emissary for scientist Nassim Haramein of the Resonance Project delivering fascinating presentations on the physics of unified field theory. Janover also produces events including an annual electronic music festival in Colorado called SONIC BLOOM
