Jay Havighurst has explored building musical instruments since graduating from the Studio for Interrelated Media and Sculpture at Massachusetts College of Art in 1980. A resident of the North Shore of Massachusetts, he designed interactive, kinetic sound art, including large-scale sculptures that combine abstract visual elements with themes of rhythm and cycles inspired by nature. His work has been exhibited in the New Directions in Sound Environments show at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, Massachusetts, and at numerous galleries and festivals. Havighurst composes music that is layered and multi-timbral, and has accompanied several modern dance and performance pieces. With an unusual collection of instruments from around the world, he has a passion to share their sounds in group music-making, drumming, and celebrations, making music participatory and open to everyone
