Jeff Kolar is a sound artist and curator working in Chicago, USA. His work, described as “speaker-shredding,” “wonderfully strange,” and characteristically curious,” includes cross-platform collaboration, low-powered radio, and live performance. His work activates sound in unconventional, temporary, and ephemeral ways using appropriation and remix as a critical practice. His solo and collaborative projects, installations, and public performances often investigate the mundane sonic nuances of everyday electronic devices.

Jeff is the Founder and Artistic Director of Radius, an experimental radio broadcast platform, which participated in the Museum as Instrument residency. Since 2011, Radius has commissioned over 50 original works by artists from over 20 countries.
