Jack Hertz has been playing, composing and recording for more than 30 years. His first experience with sound began with analog reel machines, microphones, percussion and a Casio VL-Tone. His first true synthesizer was the Alpha Syntauri digital synthesizer that was was hosted by an Apple IIe PC. The steep learning curve exposed him to a universe of concepts nearly a decade before others. Later, he was introduced to Yamaha's DX7 and the vast capabilities of FM synthesis that he has been working with ever since.
Jack is a seasoned improvisor who finds all aspects of creating sound fascinating. From the early percussion instruments to the present day hardware and software innovations. Generally, Jack 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 sound with unique characteristics that create spaces and atmospheres a listener can explore.

An artist/alchemist who has discovered a philosophers stone in its radiant fullness - A glimpse into the gaping void and a feast both sacred & profane. A reflection of the stark realities of existence ... beyond (mis)conceptions ... Distilling his vision of the dire consequences which our children may inherit yet offering a potential bridge to a future with unlimited potential. Experience the immortal yet entropic ambience of WOAA...Taste & See, it IS good!! ... Or in the words of Larry David, "it is pretty, pretty, pretty .... Good!" Improvisatoré
