Bouvetøya was formed in 2008 as the electronic music avatar of Michael Jones. After a lifetime listening to the pioneers of electronica, namely Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre, and the sound creators of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Michael acquired his first real synthesizers during the 1990s. During the early 2000s, he migrated from tape to a software DAW and began constructing a small home studio.

Contemporary influences such as Boards of Canada, AIR, and FSOL also began shaping his music and the first ambient soundscape demos emerged and circulated among his fellow EM peers. With the encouragement of those around him, Michael began to look for an internet outlet for his music and the concept of Bouvetøya was conceived. The name is from the Norwegian spelling of Bouvet Island in the South Atlantic, the most isolated island on the planet. This is a reference to the Bob Moog quote that "electronic music is played by musicians who work alone and listened to by people who listen alone."
