New Artistic Operations and Marketing Coordinator: Jesse Budel


Soundstream welcomes its new administrator, Jesse Budel!

Jesse is a composer-performer, sound artist, producer and arts entrepreneur based in South Australia.  

A graduate of Elder Conservatorium of Music (BMus(Hons) 2013, PhD 2019), Jesse is a previous recipient of a Carclew Fellowship and Helpmann Academy Grants.

With an interdisciplinary creative practice ranging from the concert hall and theatre to installation art and community collaborative projects, Jesse’s projects traverse the metropolitan, regional and remote landscapes and soundscapes of Australia and further afield. 

In 2012, Jesse received Australia Council funding for a JUMP National Mentorship Scholarship where he was mentored by Gabriella Smart in artistic direction and curation as part of that year’s Soundstream Collective program and Festival. He was also Residency Manager for Alvin Curran’s 2013 residency with Soundstream, and supported in the production of the 2014 and 2016 Emerging Composers’ Forums.

He is excited to rejoin the Soundstream team, and is looking forward to the diverse array of projects on the 2022 calendar!
