Biography

“Literally one of the best experimental artists currently making tracks… Layers and layers of experimental-electronic goodness… focus constantly shifts from leads to bridges to the beat and back around again…using sounds in Ableton Live that many others would have difficulty with, but instead forms an analog/virtual opus.” — Women’s Radio

Jones slips through the veils of defined sound, weaving cello, violin, woodwinds, rhodes, electronics and sound design through unique instrumentation.

Her tracks have been released with several reputable international labels as Iboga, Spun Records, Aleph Zero, Ultimae, Native State Records and she’s celebrating the launch of her new label Cartesian Binary Recordings.

Two of Jones’ albums have been chosen in the top 25 essential albums of the year on NPR Echoes Radio in 2006 and in 2009.

Multiple tours around North America and Europe have lead Rena to perform at some of the worlds most established cutting edge electronic music festivals; Glade Festival (UK), The Secret Garden Festival (UK), Shambhala Music Festival (Canada), Lightning in a Bottle as well as tour support for Plaid and opener for Ladytron.

Jones’ live sets are a potent sonic session. She orchestrates her violin and cello over hand crafted beats melding the organic with the electronic. Her performance is a sophisticated example of the modern movement in electronic dance and ambient music.
