YACHT is one of the many creative alter egos of jona bechtolt, a musician and multimedia artist who embraces an eclectic but playful blend of electronics, acoustic percussion, and noises of all sorts. Bechtolt teamed up with vocalist and performance artist khaela maricich to form the Blow, whose upbeat blend of beats and off-kilter melodies won them a loyal following after releasing the first of several albums for K Records in 2002 Bechtolt has worked as a collaborator and/or accompanist for devendra banhart, Bobby birdman, mirah, little wings, the microphones, and many others, as well as remixing tracks for architecture in helsinki and white rainbow. and has created performance pieces under commission to new york city's new museum of contemporary art and the portland institute of contemporary art.
