Jo Thomas writes her music as multi fragmented cacophony, capturing micro snaps, sporadic beats, glitches and edged echoes. Minimal voids and frantic spaces with shards of improvisation always cored in bass.
She performs live internationally and locally on a regular basis and her music is released by Entr’acte.
She was awarded the Golden Nica in Prix Ars Electronica 2012 for her work Crystal. Her 1st solo release Alpha was nominated for a Qwartz award in 2011. Her latest solo release Nature of Habit (Entr’acte) is due out in the 28th of May 2012.

-'a richly detailed soundworld in which the listener can explore with out feeling the over bearing structure of impressions or interpretation. Liberating her music and her listeners from the delimiting realm of the recognisable , both the vapourous spaces of Zero and the more ferrible clicks and pops of Charged have a distinct self sufficiency .... accidental alchemy producing unique bursts and flickers of timbre.
-'The music of Jo Thomas has a rare luminescence to it. Moments of subtlety and surprise flash by, each one of them illuminated with a gentle precision. Microscopic galaxies unfold; sub-atomic fields of activity suddenly expand to fill the surrounding space. Be prepared to take your time, however, because these are not works that give up their secrets too readily.This is the sound of the future whispering in your ear with quiet assurance. All you have to do is listen.'
