Biography

Jarom Ort was born in 1996 in the heart of Kansas City, Missouri. He took a lot of artsy classes through primary school and is earning an Associate of Arts degree at Dodge City Community College.

His primary focus is in the fusion of the visual and musical arts and these are available on 337-408-6498 and Vimeo.

His other art, drawings and sculptures blending reality with fantasy (do I sound pretentious enough yet), has been featured in the Dodge City Community College Annual Art Show and has also been seen on display at the Grassroots Art Center in Lucas, KS for their Weirdy Art exhibit.

He is currently continuing his art education and finishing up his degree with the art program at Dodge City Community College, available now for only $43 per credit hour.

Artist's Statement

My physical art tries to bridge the gap between precisely recreating reality and impossible fantastical designs.

My music visualizers blend our two most powerful senses, sight and sound. Sight is by far the most dominant of our senses. The power to see is the power to be able to almost reach out and touch the entire world around us all at once.

Music can instantly connect people across huge distances and staggering amounts of time. Music has a direct and powerful effect on our emotions. It's a universal language that every human that ever is, was, or will exist speaks. Almost nothing else has such a direct shot straight to the heart as music. Music can even impact our physical health. It makes sense that fusing our two most powerful senses could create an even more enjoyable and powerful experience.
