About the speaker

Jonathan Kawchuk is a field recordist, sound artist, and composer from Canada. For his debut album, North (Paper Bag Records), all compositions were played back into the forests of Jostedal National Park, Norway, and re-recorded after reverberating around their natural surroundings.

Jonathan is an alumnus of the Canadian Film Centre’s Slaight Family Music Residency as well as the Banff Centre for the Arts Musicians in Residence program. He is represented by Evolution Music Partners as a film composer and has scored multiple feature-length films, web series, and video features (including spots for Vogue Italia and Dior).

In addition to his formal education, he has held a recording internship in Iceland, learned gamelan in Indonesia, and studied wildlife field recording in England under Chris Watson (Frozen Planet, Nova).

Kawchuk is currently the Canadian representative of Quiet Parks International.
