Behold! A new release, Computer Music I. This is the first in a series of computer music styled recordings I will be releasing. These are works inspired by the computer and large systems from the 50s and 60s such as the Buchla, RCA and MUSIC-N systems. Listen to this real-time recording performed on a large array of FM8 synthesizers. You can download it now for free from High Frequency Music now at http://highfrequencymusic.com/...

Artificial is a collection of 16 cyberpunk inspired works between music and noise. Roaming electronic styles from ambient to experimental to psychedelic krautrock. Mystical and yet full of life organic musical movement by Jack Hertz. This release is focused on using the studio to explore surreal sonic spaces that feel natural and artificial at the same time. Artificial is available for download from the SHkART Netlabel at http://www.archive.org/details...
This week on Time Drone - Tune in to hear new releases by Todd Fletcher, Darage Bang and new material by Jack Hertz. Note the new site and day for the show. This Thursday October 6th at 6pm CT streaming live on http://stillstream.com/
This was going to be my sonic arsenal for all my East Coast shows. Everything packs up into a large backpack. I spent a lot of time working on a portable rig that I could travel with. Size, weight and power were all factors. I ended up writing a bunch of material on this rig because its so much fun to play.
We are quite pleased to release Jack's "Alpha Syntauri" at Ethereal Live. This marks our first planeterium gig to be archived on the netlabel. Even more notable, Jack played this set 20 years ago, but the music does not suffer from the long shelf life of this recording. Jack performed this concert at the Montgomery College Planetarium in Silver Spring, Maryland on May 25, 1991. Alpha Syntauri is quite a blend of sounds, and easily could have just been recorded just yesterday. Download it now at http://ethereallive.wordpress.com/2011/09/01/el004-jack-hertz-alpha-synt...
Pointillism was released in 1990 on the short lived 1 zer0 cassette label. The album is available here remastered from the original DAT as No. 3 in my cassette classics series. These tracks never sounded better and I hope you will enjoy listening to them as much I did making them. Download the Pointillism now at http://jackhertz.bandcamp.com/...
I am extremely honored to be part of this project. There are few times in life when our inspirations align with our aspirations and the two can serve one another. Alexander "Sasha" Shulgin is probably the most important chemist alive. In addition to rediscovering MDMA and popularizing its therapeutic use, he also synthesized hundreds of new psychoactive chemicals and - with his wife and companion Ann - chronicled their effects in the extraordinary detail of two legendary volumes, PIKHAL & TIKHAL. I am asking your help to contribute to this project to support Sasha Shulgin who is gravely ill and in need of medical funds. This man has given us so much. It is time we return a small favor to him in kind. For a donation of $5 USD you will get over 2 hours of music with a beautiful cover artwork made by the incredible visonary artist Alex Grey. At very least, please share this news to help Sasha Shulgin. Donate and download the album now at http://bit.ly/shulginbenefit
"Pointillism" was slated to come out in 1990 on my own label, 1 zer0. However, due to an obsession with computers. The label never came to fruition. Here is the cover to the original tape that was never released. "Pointillism" will be No. 3 in my Cassette Classics series. Watch for new videos being added to in the player. Stay tuned for more release info soon.
