Haitian electronic music composer/percussionist/turntablist, Val Jeanty aka Val-Inc evokes the musical esoteric realms of the creative subconscious and self defined as “Afro-Electronica®”. She incorporates her African Haitian Musical traditions into the present and beyond, combining acoustics with electronics and the archaic with the post-modern. She works with a diverse array of artists like Steve Coleman as a turntablist/composer, Tracie D. Morris as a percussionist and Anthony Braxton as a recording engineer. She is the recipient of the Van Lier Grant, Meet the Composer Grant and her latest project “ON” was supported in part by the New York State Music Fund. Her “Afro-Electronica” installations have been showcased in New York City at the Whitney Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Village Vanguard and internationally at SaalFelden Music Festival in Austria, Stanser Musiktage in Switzerland, Jazz a la Villette in France, and the Biennale di Venezia Museum in Italy.
