Short Bio

Juxtatonal [JUX] is a contemporary voice and cello duo performing music that juxtaposes tonality with atonality. JUX aims to legitimize playfulness on stage, find creativity in a recreative art, and connect with audiences through compositions that blur the lines between music, art, and theater. JUX was founded by Detroit-based soprano, Jocelyn Zelasko, and NYC-based cellist, Bryan Hayslett after they met and performed together at Eighth Blackbird's Creative Lab in June 2017.

"Juxtatonal brings a wide-eyed excitement and gritty intensity to their performances, which range far beyond voice and cello to include spoken word, piano, toy piano, and anything and everything else they can think of to deliver a gripping show. A true ensemble for the next generation!" ~ Nicholas Photinos, Eighth Blackbird

"JUX is a delightful mix of humor, storytelling, and musicianship" ~ Dutcher Writght-Snedeker, pianist
