(uni.) has studied percussion for 15 years, beginning with djembe, moving on to congas, Latin jazz, and still quite recently, the classical Hindustani tabla. In 2017 Jay launched into a solo project using live looping and sampling, steel drums, flute and other percussions to create a dynamic multi-instrumental sound healing improv experience that fuses the worlds of classical Indian music, modern sound healing, and live electronics.
His intention with (uni.) is to create an entrancing sacred space with presence, magic, sound and visual art. Jay lives semi-nomadically, anywhere from the Rockies, into the Kootenays, to Vancouver Island. He draws inspiration from all traditional, as well as psychedelic music, mysticism, plant medicine, and all the gorgeous people he encounters.
