about

Black Taffy (Donovan Jones) is a
Dallas-based composer and performer
whose current focus lies in pairing
ambient music with large bass and
percussion.

The first born son of Pentecostal music
ministers, Donovan grew up witnessing
the power music has to induce trance
and encourage spiritual awakening.
Eventually drawing parallels between
christianity, voodoo, and the occult,
Jones left the former to immerse himself in
the latter.

Sometimes performing with
only Vibraphone and cassette decks, he
frequently employs the use of tape
loops and other antiquated mediums to
create pillowy worlds of wow and
flutter.
