Jack Hertz - Nord Modular and MFOS Synthesizers, recording, mastering, and cover image.
Inspired by the mystery of life. Jack Hertz manipulates sound to create intangible techno-organic impressions between music and noise. He has been composing and recording experimental music for more than 30 years. Generally, he is searching for a sonic middle ground between the real and the artificial. Utilizing computers, synthesizers, found objects, field recordings and digital effects. He designs his own instruments and effects with unique characteristics that create spaces and atmospheres a listener can explore. He finds all aspects of creating sound fascinating. From the early percussion instruments to the present day hardware and software innovations. He is particularly interested in sound synthesis of all kinds, especially Frequency Modulation.

Scott's "unique" drones (drone.excursions) continue with a rush into oblivion or, as in the subtitle, like crossing the "Rubicon." This, of course, means that you have gone past the point of no return.
It is reminiscent of the fantastical light scene near the end of "2001 A Space Odyssey" ...and that was far FAR beyond the Rubicon. Brian Bourassa
