Personal profile

Academic Biography

Dr Steve Jones' academic research examines the creativity afforded by portable audio devices and new media, covering soundscape composition, performance and sound art. His interest lies in the connections between people, sound and place.

As an educator, Dr Jones has taught music and sound production at De Montfort University, Leeds Conservatoire and Coventry University. He has played at international music conservatoires, from Stockholm’s Royal College of Music, the Academy of Performing Arts, Prague, STEIM (STudio for Electro Instrumental Music), Amsterdam, to Locus Sonus, Aix-en-Provence and Marseilles. He has also led workshops 'Coding for Kids' and 'Mobile Music Orchestras' for the British Council and French Ministry of National Education's Science in Schools project in France and overseas territories. 

Steve's sound practice is rooted in UK’s dance music and DJ culture, through an enduring partnership with Dr Sally Rodgers as the production duo A Man Called Adam (AMCA). AMCA’s recordings range from early works on Giles Peterson’s cult Acid Jazz label, Chicago’s house music label Prescription Records, to the multi-million selling Café del Mar series. AMCA's published catalogue includes many licensed works for film, television and advertising. 

AMCA also create audio art for exhibition spaces ranging from the British Museum, London to the Miraikan Museum, Tokyo. They recently created a sound composition for the exhibition 'PEOPLE POWERED: Stories From The River Tees’ – a collaboration between MIMA and The National Portrait Gallery. In their roles as sound artists and educators, they initiated a series of Sunday Music Sessions at MIMA to celebrate the dynamism and history of Teesside's music scene. AMCA are actively involved in community-based projects such as Middlesbrough Sonic Art Week, Rising Tides Festival, Wintertide in Hartlepool and the Festival of Thrift.
