MODULATOR by Jack Hertz

Submitted by Jack Hertz on Wed, 06/21/2017 - 18:04

For many years, Jack Hertz has been working to fulfill a challenge laid down by Karlheinz Stockhausen in "Advice to clever children." To compose with sound in an organized, yet non-repetitious manner, without imposing patterns or meter. In today's BPM driven world, this can seem impossible until we look at modulation of timbre, tempo and arrangements. This album marks a turning point as these 13 tracks are the best examples of Jack Hertz' work. Collected from years of work, Jack considers this to be some of his best and most challenging works.

Mechanics of Blue

Jack Hertz presents a new release that reflects on the industry of unhappiness, the Mechanics of Blue. Entities that design products to make us feel afraid, unattractive, or unwanted. Cloaked in commerce. Branding, deception, fear, propaganda, gamification, subversion, trust, social engineering and other methods are exploited to get us to buy and do what we do not want.

Surprise is an interesting idea for composition. This is what one gets when working with modular synthesizers. The machine' willingness to obey is purely deceptive. It has it's own rules that take over, leaving the composer behind. Get it now from Murmure Intemporel at https://archive.org/details/M…
