He is currently a doctoral candidate in composition at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, and holds degrees from Brigham Young University and Brigham Young University-Idaho. Jones’s style focuses on the elaboration of musical and extramusical gestures and ideas, and many of his works explore the dynamic relationship between composer and performer through the use of aleatoric and improvisatory techniques.
