Jon Asencio

  • Composer • Performer

Jon Asencio is a 20 year veteran of the Montréal music scene. His sonic evolution has crossed numerous genres, from punk, pop, reggae and jazz to experimental and electronic music. Many of his musical projects have also included an aspect of performance (such as the UFO obsessed space rock band Starbean) or his retro video game conceptual sound performance ‘PONG’. Never one to shy away from chaos, his work is an attempt to blur the line between being a musician and performance artist. Recently he has played the Montréal Jazz Festival with world music group Ark Of Infinity, and has also released CDs by avant-pop noise band Goa Gajah and his own performance art/music project The Electronic Humans Guild.
