Biography

Jaclyn Heyen, MM., is an experimental artist from Patagonia, Arizona.  She is the first person to live full-time on a motorcycle pulling her teardrop trailer home. During this time, 2012 - 2020, her creative work was based on her experiences on the road.  Her masters' thesis, Theorizing Soundwalls: Listening Within the Noise and creation of Tinny Scoots, an audio controller built out of the body of a scooter, opened up the need to share her experiences on her motorcycle.  

Jaclyn's research has focused on the use of music technology within a therapeutic environment.  She has worked on the Adaptive Use Musical Instruments Project from the Deep Listening Institute along with using unique ways of working with music technology that involves motion tracking or unique interfaces. She also has a deep interest in the soundscape and soundwall and how one listens and defines themselves through noise. 

After years on the road her current focus is creating off grid living on her property. Also experiencing deep meditation through Reiki and Sound.
