Peter Jones is a Kansas City-based musician. He started playing trumpet in 5th grade and has since then picked up piano, ocarina, and a love for audio production. Peter graduated cum laude from Drury University in 2014 in Arts Administration and Music and studied music composition with Dr. Carlyle Sharpe.Peter’s favorite video game composer is Yasunori Mitsuda. Producing for Materia Collective’s “OMEGA: A Tribute to Xenogears,” alongside playing the game for the first time, sealed the deal. Using uncommon (and even non-functional) harmonic progressions, exotic cultural idioms, and otherworldly vocal harmonies sung in Bulgarian folk style all influenced Peter in how he views music and creates his own.Speaking of Xenogears, Peter houses an alternate persona known as XenoKeyz. Upon zapping his Pandora’s talkbox, the Talkstar, with 2.5A of 24V DC, absolute funk follows. XenoKeyz is an active YouTuber who posts covers of tracks from video games, anime, and classic hits from R&B, rock, pop, and the like (juggled with game audio implementation and composition while reverted back to Peter).
