It is sad there are less than 150 Million people from indigenous tribes, left on Earth. Considered to be uncivilized. They are the people who led humanity out of the forest. Into the governments, religions and corporations. That now threaten our true ancestors’ existence.

MODULATOR by Jack Hertz

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.
