Harmonia Macrocosmica Now Available on Aural Films

These tracks began as experiments with different harmonic tones to find the most minimal sound elements I could use. In mixing these simple tones. A scenographic soundscape of tonal juxtapositions shifting like stars in the sky emereged from my speakers. Like the visions so wonderfully realized in Andreas Cellarius's great star atlas, the "Harmonia Macrocosmica" (1660). I dedicate these sounds to his work.

COAST by Jack Hertz & rizorkestra Now Available on Aural Films

COAST is a word with two meanings. It is a place where the land meets the water, or something that is propelled without effort.

This music draws from both meanings. Reflecting on sunlit waters, and the easy going life on the Pacific coast. We hope you enjoy this music as much as we have making it.
