Brian Bourassa There is one thing for sure about Jack Hertz - he has a sense of humor. As an example check out his Ear of God release.

GROK (KORG spelt backwards) is a highly immersive electronic work done exclusively with the KORG synths. It is Dronish in nature, yet has an eerie and bizarre feel to it that offers lots of room for discovery and for the visual imagination to flourish.

Jack Hertz - Korg Polysix, Korg DW8000, Korg Karma, and Korg Kronos.

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. Read more about his work at
