Molly Jones’ practice incorporates improvisation, composition, and multimedia performance with saxophones, flutes, found sounds, laptop, words, and video. Her work originates in a place of playfulness, listening, and attention. She performs/has performed in free jazz, new music, Balkan brass, spoken word, Scottish country dance, and electroacoustic ensembles in Chicago and Detroit while building a parallel career as a data engineer.

Her research focuses on building, adapting, and training audio-generating neural networks ethically for use in compositions and other musical applications. She is the founder of Chicago Creative Machines, a lecture/performance series promoting the work of artists creating with original machine learning tools, and a curator at Elastic Arts in Chicago.
