Jack Hertz Eclipse Music Show on Time Drone 2012-11-29

My composition for the November 28, 2012 Lunar eclipse event is done. It has become a sort of ritual to record these and play them on my radio show, Time Drone. Seems only fitting to make a show of it and play a bit of a marathon with all three eclipse compositions from 2011-12-15, 2012-5-, and 2012-11-28 tonight at 10 pm ET / 9 pm CT / 7 pm PT on http://StillStream.com Two of them can be EMjoyed below in video format.

In The Fog Named Ambient Exotica Song of the Month!

My album "In The Fog" on 45 Echoes Sounds has been named Song of the Month at Ambient Exotica. Many thanks for the kind review: "In The Fog, however, is worth your while, as Jack Hertz manages to create a thick arcane fog with the help of synths – so far, so usual – but carefully strays away from overloading them with all too many textures. Everything is balanced out, and it is the interplay between the different patterns and layers which creates the impression of being in a vault-like antrum near a misty field rather than boosting the drugged state of fluffiness or ethereality."

Expo - My First Memories of Tomorrow In the Labyrinth

When I was 4 years old, my father took me with him to the Expo in Montreal Canada. Too young to remember it then, I did see get to the USA Pavilion housed inside the geodesic sphere designed by R. Buckminster Fuller when I was older on frequent trips to La Ronde. I always admired the futuristic architecture of Habitat 67, and the Canada and the German pavilions. So Much of the wonderful ephemera presented in 1967 still feels quite modern today such as the amazing film "In the Labyrinth" that debuted at the Expo.
