Marielle V Jakobsons is a composer and intermedia artist from Oakland, and has released recordings with Thrill Jockey, Students of Decay, Root Strata, Mexican Summer, Important Records, among others. She has been awarded the Djerassi Artist Residency, Dresher Ensemble Artist Residency, Brush Creek Foundation Arts Residency, American Composer’s Forum Grant, and NEXMAP Sounding Out California Composer’s Award. Her installations, photographs, and videos have been exhibited or screened at the LAB (CA), Warehouse 1-10 (NM), Indiana University East’s “Art + Science” Juried Exhibition (IN), Allegany Arts Council Juried Photography Exhibition (MD), Staunton International Film Festival (VA), and Madelife (CO).

On her new record Star Core, she uses her voice for the first time, while expanding on ideas she explored in her previous solo records and as one-half of the group Date Palms. Star Core revolves around minimalist synthesizer layers with melodic violin, flute, and vocals over elongated bass grooves. The songs on the album are her version of devotional hymns, and they create a cosmic yet personal environment to slow down with and to get lost in. Marielle builds installations and instruments which bring focus to visceral experience of sound and light, most recently with her “Macro-Cymatic Visual Music Instrument.” She will be performing with Chuck Johnson on electric bass, and featuring synchronous videos composed with her visual music instrument.
