Jake Muir is a sound artist based in Los Angeles, California. Fascinated by musical intimacy and the intersection of nature and technology, Muir centers his work around the use of 'found sound', including field recordings, vinyl loops, and shortwave radio clips. These audio fragments are manipulated and welded together to further distance them from their original context. Despite sharing a similar technique, every project is distinct and informed by a radically different concept, each evoking Muir's deep ties to location, texture and mood.

Muir draws from an extensive background in formal audio production and has trained alongside professional sound recordists Chris Watson, Jez Riley French, and Gordon Hempton. He seeks to apply his detailed approach to sound production in a professional media post-production capacity in music, film, video games and/or television.
