Jenkins, Jon

As a recording artist, Jon Jenkins sees it as his responsibility to reach out, grab the listeners by the ears, drag them into another world and show them around a little bit. "I've always been fascinated by the ability of a good piece of music to stimulate the imagination and transport the listener to another place in their mind without ever leaving their chair."
With his outstanding releases to his credit, Jon Jenkins has established himself as a unique artist with a distingushable style. Not an easy task in the Ambient Electronic musical realm. In fact, not only has he managed to discover something quite precious - his own musical space, but he can convince you that it is yours as well.

On the picture we see him left together with David Helpling on the right side.

David Helpling + Jon Jenkins - Found

Artist: David Helpling + Jon Jenkins
P:
2013
The dramatic final chapter of the award-winning three-album collaboration from David Helpling and Jon Jenkins, FOUND follows the path set by the duo’s previous genre-defying releases, TREASURE and THE CROSSING, blending cinematic electronics with rock power and spacemusic sensibilities to deliver a tremendously moving and meaningful resolution to the Helpling/Jenkins trilogy. Melodic and deep, powerful and atmospheric, FOUND is an epic work that plays like a big movie.  Highlighted by thundering drums and percussion, shimmering electric guitars, intimate pianos and lush synth textures, the album leads the listener through sweeping sonic vistas and deep intimate soundworlds where intricate and compelling rhythms drive the music to majestic heights, and then recede into soundscapes both serene and poignant.  The entire journey culminates in the emotionally charged title track, featuring a beautiful wordless vocal by virtuoso Miriam Stockley. “This is a record that’s meant to be listened to from start to finish in order to appreciate the full experience,” explains Jenkins, “but the album also plays a crucial role in the bigger picture, because it completes the trilogy, and we really wanted this to be a fitting close to the emotional arc that unfolds across all three albums.” While FOUND may be the third episode of a trilogy, this carefully crafted new release is not merely a rehashing of the two earlier works. Helpling & Jenkins pushed themselves to take their distinct sound to a new level where the deep, three-dimensional quality to the recording is instantly recognizable. Helpling explains, “Since this record is the conclusion to a trilogy, we felt a major responsibility to make something bigger and deeper, both musically and emotionally. I think all of that drive within us even went into technical things like the recording and mixing.” From the irresistible opening through the bold conclusion, FOUND completes a three-album six-year chapter of the Helpling/Jenkins collaboration on a grand scale, with deep emotion and unmistakeable style.  Filled with powerful rushes of adrenaline, beauty, loss and triumph, FOUND is an album for the ages, that discovers uncharted territory in the expanding world of electronic music.

David Helpling + Jon Jenkins - The Crossing

Artist: David Helpling + Jon Jenkins
P:
2010
Since the release of their first collaboration, Treasure, David and Jon have spent the past two years in the depths of deep exile carefully crafting a new recording, and are now ready to resurface with THE CROSSING. With this latest collaboration, Helpling and Jenkins embark on a fresh sonic expedition - a cinematic, powerful and deeply melodic triumph that lifts their music to new heights. More than just a follow-up to Treasure, The Crossing is a climb, a challenge and most of all a continuation of the journey; a deliberate sequel that launches from the very place that Treasure so gently released the listener three years earlier.
Jenkins explains, "We wanted to take all of the the ingredients that make a great movie or book sequel - more action, more intensity, and somewhat darker with more daunting challenges - and express them through the music on this record."
According to Helpling, "The Crossing is a title with more than one meaning. Not only is it a metaphorical representation of an arduous and inspired journey across an unfathomable hardship and distance, but it is also a crossing of two paths, of two currents; the result of which is complex and beautiful as well as powerful and intangible."
The Crossing is a project which ignores current trends in ambient and electronic music, and Helpling and Jenkins are fearless in their pursuit of the lush and monumental sound that dominates their artistic vision. All the essentials for an epic journey are here: compelling and expansive multi-layered drum elements contrasted by alluring yet elusive textures, strong melodies appearing over powerful percussion, synths and guitars, all of which give way to vast spaces of deep and mystifying ambience.
From grand melodic vistas to enveloping sonic clouds of textural mystery, The Crossing leads the listener to the ends of the earth...and beyond.

Jon Jenkins + Paul Lackey - Continuum

Artist: Jon Jenkins
P:
1995
This is a great album of classical and space music influences which treads a fine line between both genres throughout. One aspect that reminded me of classical structure was the continuity of the opening and closing pieces.
The last piece, Continuum is a reprise to the opening string swells of the first piece, Tugging at the Cloud. As a whole, the album reminds me of the work of Dutch Emusic composers, John Kerr and Ron Boots, leaning more towards John Kerr's symphonic synth excursions. Two pieces, Behind the Mask and Adrift even feature the labels head honcho, Howard Givens on keyboards and guitar respectfully. Teeto Cheema adds a great deal of atmosphere to The Vision with some well placed flute riffs in crucial spots.
This collection of eleven compositions, is a successful marriage of classical, ambient, and world music that defies classification. Along with the added touches from their guests, Jon and Paul combine a variety of eclectic hues to create a compelling musical canvas.

Jon Jenkins - Flow

Artist: Jon Jenkins
P:
1998
Delving deep into the viscosity of life, Jon Jenkins masterfully engages the metaphor of water to ponder the fabric of existence with his powerful second release. Delicately crafted and sculpted soundscapes of sublime keyboard textures combine with the ambient electric guitars of Jeff Pearce, David Helpling, and Howard Givens, which along with occasional percussion create moments of subtlety and power that suggest the very process of life from beginning to end, like the flow of water from the spring to the sea. This is a profound listening experience that is dramatic, introspective, and ultimately inescapable.
David Helpling - Ambient electric guitar on From The Spring
Jeff Pearce - Ambient electric guitar on Night Drifting Through Black Canyon, Breathing In The Deep and Part Of The Solution
