Juno 3

about Juno 3

Han-earl Park (guitar)
Lara Jones (saxophone and electronics)
Pat Thomas (electronics)

Wonderful energy, constant motion, and roiling in noise. And immense amount of grit and power.

— Corey Mwamba (Freeness, BBC Radio 3)

The antidote to universal entropy. Take once daily. Side effects may include meaningless joy.

— Dave Foxall (a Jazz Noise, Best of 2023)

Masterminded by Berlin-based Korean-American improviser and guitarist Han-earl Park, Juno 3 is his trio with avant-DJ Lara Jones (saxophone and electronics) and the boundless experimentalist Pat Thomas (electronics).

Nautiloid capsule tumbles
across field lines.
An impracticably agile,
graceful derailment.

Captivating, gripping and fascinating, Juno 3’s music is a particle sim of sounds which spelunks from derelict urban ravines to cybernetic rainforests, while catching auditory glimpses of crashing robotic waves, and strange telegraphic messages from space. Their self-titled debut album is out now on Ramble Records, and they recently performed in London Jazz Festival’s outer left-field.
