Jen Hill (b. 1993) is a composer and sound artist living and working in Texas. Their compositions explore the formal and conceptual dichotomy between the individual (event) (self) (isolation) and the whole (ecosystem) (society) (engagement) and examine the construction of /musical impossibilities/ that challenge logical compositional techniques. Hill has had works performed across the United States and has been praised by Zachary Woolfe (New York Times) for a “subtle, ominously hushed” voice and by conductor Christopher Rountree as “angsty and brutal.” Hill has also performed regularly with their Denton-based projects *~~, and Gin Hell and the Austin-based band More Eaze, while remaining active in the local new music community through the Errant New Music Collective, which they co-founded in 2013.
