Jobina Tinnemans is a music composer and sound designer, her work is rich and contrasting and encompasses a wide variety of analogue, digital, lofi and high-end techniques throughout her practice.

Tinnemans constantly strives to walk into her personal unknown, often deliberately facing her disagreeing emotions to a subject matter – other than her compositions would suggest, she doesn’t enjoy sports nor building sites. Yet such a confrontation is free from expectations, trigger her wit and liberate to comfortably explore the unpredictable. In 2007 she performed the highly acclaimed piece ‘Shakespeare and Hedgeshear’ which was composed specifically for the performance space – a disused gasometer – and involved two table-tennis teams and hedge-cutting performers, which will be performed again at the ISCM World Music Days 2014 in Wroclaw.

Jobina has worked with some of the most highly regarded innovators and institutions in music, radio and research; her independent radio productions and music have been broadcast by the likes of the BBC and ABC. Last year she was invited to join former employees from The BBC Radiophonic Workshop together with a group of contemporary musicians and producers to curate a new exhibition celebrating the work of electronic music pioneer Daphne Oram at the Science Museum in London.
