Jo Burzynska – who also works under the name Stanier Black-Five – is an Australasia-based sound artist and writer. Her audio work largely comprises soundscapes created by the manipulation of her own minimally processed environmental recordings. In a career that spans twenty years, she has recorded, exhibited and performed her works internationally. In recent years this has seen her make a number of sound releases, such as her CD album Avast! on Belgium’s Entr’acte label and Alone with the Black Spirits vinyl release on the UK’s Rail Cables; exhibit sound installations at Australasian galleries to Rome’s MAXXI; and perform shows and festivals around the world. In recent years her work has increasingly been created at the intersection of the senses; always using sound, but often combined with taste and olfactory elements. Also a writer and editor, she has contributed to specialist publications such as The Wire, and co-edits Australasia’s only sonic arts print publication, Writing Around Sound. She currently lives in Sydney, where she is researching sound and the multisensory for a PhD at the University of New South Wales.
