DJ | Live | Composer | Producer
Owner of ONO Records and sub labels ONOMAR and ONOBOTS, Jan Pienkowski loves to create and share his unique blend of music and sounds. His music, electroacoustic and physics training and deep affection for house, techno, dub, world, classical and jazz bring a diverse palette of textures, grooves and acoustic spaces. While his studio work for labels, dance, film and video game projects grows in demand, Jan is equally at home behind the decks making people dance in clubs and festivals across the globe (Barcelona, Madrid, Mexico City, Hong Kong, Warsaw, Montreal ++).
Back home in Montreal, Jan DJs in the best clubs the city has to offer (SAT, Salon Daomé, Stereo Bar, Laika, Peopl/UN, Kanalbar) as well as making festival appearances for Mutek, Elektra, Black & Blue, MEG, Divers/Cité, Nuit Blanche. He has been a resident artist at the Société des arts technologiques [SAT] (one of the most unique digital art spaces in the world) for over ten years, producing and performing DJ/VJ/LIVE events and interdisciplinary immersive live shows as well as developing and teaching music production courses.
Jan's constant quest for pushing the boundaries of electronic music and live performance has given him the chance of collaborating with the Opera of Montreal, to be the music and sound composer for the film RE-GENERATION commissioned for the UN COP21 Conference on Climate Change in Paris, the music director and performer in DOMAGAYA - an encounter of Aboriginal Cultures and Digital Arts for the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada during the 400th anniversary of Quebec City, as well as to be chosen by the British Council as the Canadian Representative for the Cultural Leadership International (CLI) initiative.
