who I am

dejacusse AKA Jude Casseday (soundscape artist/electronic musician) is deeply in love with vibration in the form of sound and music. Memories of her first tape recorder (age 8) rekindled an interest in celebrating all sound as music through recorded samples and the wonderful sonic playground known as Ableton Live.

dejacusse produces original sound pieces and music for dance, film, art events and movement classes and workshops. From 2015 to 2019, the band iBoD (the idiosyncratic beats of dejacusse ft. Eleanor Mills on harmonicas, melodica and bells; Susanne Romey on flutes, recorders and keyboards; Jim Kellough on digital horn; and dejacusse on soundscape, uke, NA flute, keyboards) created Nested Soundscapes in various acoustic spaces around Durham and Chapel Hill. In 2019, Playing by Ear with Lisa Means became a further iteration of iBoD.

Since 2014, dejacusse has explored the Fold as the smallest unit of “moving matter” by sculpting folds into soundscapes. This work was developed in conjunction with Glenna Batson’s Human Origami movement workshops, and is now available as an album Audiorigami (Meditations on the Fold) @ Bandcamp/dejacusse and all other music outlets.

An exciting new direction for 2019 was data sonification for the Sourdough Project through Rob Dunn Labs at NC State University. The album RISE: Sonic Sketches from Sourdough Cultures was released on Bandcamp and all major music platforms in the Spring of 2021.

As of April 2019, I do not know who I am. All of the above is still happening, and I do not know who I am.

March 2021 – settling into riding the oscillations, keeping track of some of the ride in this blog, who am I? is a never ending wonder, I deeply appreciate your company right now

April 2022 – spending time Loosing My Mind and Playing The Field, out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing. Meet me there!!β€οΈπŸ™πŸŒŠπŸŒ
