A composer, DJ, physicist, and founder of ONO Records (ONOMAR, ONOBOTS), Jan Pienkowski writes and performs music reflecting his diverse background. His love for music and audio has led him through radio, contemporary dance, film, tv, theatre, opera, installation and acoustics research projects, but he attributes his real start to DJing to when he won the Global Underground DJ Mix Competition back in 2002 – opening doors to air play of his DJ mixes around the world and the beginning of more serious gigs in Montreal.

Jan Pienkowski’s performances and projects span North America, Europe and Asia, which have given him the opportunity to play and collaborate with a long list of international and local artists. Back home in Montreal he is a resident at the SAT (la Société des arts technologiques) where he performs regularly, works on immersive sound/video projects and teaches audio/music courses. Apart from playing at a very long list of venues, he has also played at festivals such as Mutek, Elektra, Black & Blue, MEG, Quebec 400, Divers/Cité, Montreal and Toronto’s Nuit Blanche… as well as many more.

His productions have been featured on compilations with artists such as Misstress Barbara, LSG, Max Graham, Ian Pooley, Chromeo, and many others… while he has also releases a full length album and a few EPs on his own labels. Jan is busy working in the studio on his new album and live show for 2014, but you can expect a few releases before then from him.
