Personal profile

Academic Biography

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

As an educator, Dr Jones has taught audio and music production to undergraduate students at De Montfort University, Leeds Conservatoire and Coventry University. 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. 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.

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. This summer 2023 they released their critically acclaimed album "The Girl With A Hole In Her Heart".

AMCA also create gallery enabling sound for exhibition spaces, ranging from the British Museum, London to the Miraikan Museum, Tokyo. They recently created a soundscape composition for the current exhibition 'PEOPLE POWERED: Stories From The River Tees’ – a collaboration between MIMA and The National Portrait Gallery. In their roles as artists and educators, they initiated a series of Sunday Music Sessions at MIMA to celebrate the dynamisms and history of Teesside's music scene. Rodgers and Jones are both actively involved in community-based sound projects for Rising Tides Festival, Redcar and Festival of Thrift, Billingham.
