Jack Hertz

Artist / Programmer / Synthesist
Inspired by the mystery of life. I have been working with sound to create intangible impressions between music and noise for more than 30 years. My first experiments with sound began with analog tape reel machines, cassettes, microphones, and percussion.

My first real experience was with the Alpha Syntauri digital synthesizer system that was was hosted by an Apple IIe PC. The advanced, at the time, concepts exposed me to the universe of sound design. Today, I am working to develop a sonic middle ground between the real and the artificial. Designing unique spaces and atmospheres a listener can explore though sound.
