Aural films is excited to present our 200th album release with a very special album from Jack Hertz!
For many years, Jack Hertz has been working to fulfill a challenge laid down by Karlheinz Stockhausen in "Advice to clever children." To compose with sound in an organized, yet non-repetitious manner, without imposing patterns or meter. In today's BPM driven world, this can seem impossible until we look at modulation of timbre, tempo and arrangements. This album marks a turning point as these 13 tracks are the best examples of Jack Hertz' work. Collected from years of work, Jack considers this to be some of his best and most challenging works.
Inspired by the mystery of life, Jack Hertz manipulates sound to create intangible techno-organic impressions between music and noise. Composing and recording music for more than 30 years. Jack is always searching for a sonic middle ground between the real and the artificial. He utilizes machines, instruments, found objects, field recordings, and effects processing to designs sounds, spaces, and atmospheres for deep listening. More of his work is available at JackHertz.com .
