Jesse Budel (b. 1991) is a composer-performer, sound artist, producer and arts entrepreneur based in South Australia.

His works are for diverse media and spaces, ranging from concert works and installations to community and interdisciplinary collaborations. His music has been performed the Australian String Quartet (AUS), Soundstream Ensemble (AUS), Zephyr Quartet (AUS), Elder Conservatorium Wind Orchestra (AUS) and Corvus Ensemble (Alaska, USA), and he has been an artist-in-residence at Adelaide City Library and Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre in Mount Gambier (SA, AUS), as well as at Arts Letters and Numbers (Upstate NY, USA).

Jesse's PhD research at Elder Conservatorium of Music (supported by an Australian Government Research Training Program scholarship) focussed on adapting soundscape ecology to creative process, resulting in a body of works responding South Australian ecosystems and soundscapes, and receiving a Dean's Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence in 2019. Previously, he graduated with a Bachelor of Music (Composition) with First Class Honours in 2013, studying with Graeme Koehne, David Harris and Charles Bodman Rae, and receiving numerous Director's Awards for 'outstanding achievement as a composer and a high level of commitment in the promotion and performance of new music'.
