Jata C is an artistic group whose members share a passion for field recordings, bioacoustics and sound ecology. Their research combines auditory perception with ecological and social issues, expanding them with scientific discourse and original performances of sonic environments. In their compositions, they transform field recordings of their immediate surroundings into speculative projections of the future and delicate perceptions of the present. To capture the various environmental acoustic phenomena, they employ a vast array of field recording devices central to the so-called deep listening and non-anthropocentric relation with biotic and non-biotic entities. In their performances they follow a general score, leaving enough space for improvisation and live interpretation. Currently,  the group has presented to public two other compositions, namely ICEmeltings (2019) and Bibaret JC210120 (2020). The members of Jata C are primarily active as independent artists, but the connectedness in the context of the group enriches and reflects their own styles and views and offers a completely new context for understanding their joint creative practive.
