Born in the U.S (1992), raised in Israel. Composer Yonatan Ron has begun his musical path at the age of 10, taking guitar and music theory lessons. Later continuing under the supervision of composer and guitarist Ruben Seroussi, a faculty member and head of the composition department in The Buchmann-Mehta School of Music at TAU, Israel. 

Ron obtains a B.A in Music Composition from the Koninklijk Conservatorium, The Hague, Holland, where he studied with composers Cornelis De Bondt & Peter Adriaansz. Ron has been among the first young composers to be accepted to the ‘Tedarim program’ for excellence in composition held by Ensemble Meitar (2015 - 2016) and his music is recurrently commissioned by The Israeli Music Festival from 2016. In his work, Yonatan aims to draw the listener’s attention to the notion of continuously transforming gestures, long processual trajectories that gradually unfold, as well as the polarity between Chronos time (Quantitative / chronological or sequential, pulse-driven time) and Kairos (Uncountable time perception / “Frozen” time). Yonatan’s work draws its inspiration from a variety of fields ranging from arts history and music theory to acoustics, arithmetic principles, cosmology & meteorology. As to date, Yonatan is a Master’s degree student at the University of Washington, Seattle, where he studies composition with Huck Hodge & Yigit Kolat.
