Along with Robyn McGrath and Kathryn Sutherland, Euesden is a founding member of The Amplified Elephants. Euesden’s practice is focused on minimalist sonic patterns, usually realising these ideas through synthesisers. Having performed in nearly all The Amplified Elephants projects since 2007, a career highlight for Euesden was the show THE NIS (2009, 2013), which involved performing on robotic music instruments and in collaboration with the BOLT Ensemble (a chamber orchestra). In that show, Euesden performed solo synthesiser sequences against an orchestral backdrop. In 2015, Jay toured to the Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music to perform SELECT NATURALIS, a show featuring the Duckworth Hullick Duo’s Resonance Table touch screen musical interface. The show was again presented in 2018 at RMIT University. Most recently, in 2018 Euesden performed SELF SEEKERS for the Festival of Live Art and then remounted the work at the Footscray Community Arts Centre in 2019.
Jay is also a member of the Sonic Adventurers Collective initiated in 2019 through JOLT Arts.
