Fractal Blend of Primitive Icons and Numbers Stations by Jack Hertz & Zreen Toyz
Aural Films is happy to announce a new release by sound artists Jack Hertz and Zreen Toyz.
Listeners will be treated the three deep sonic explorations into what the artists call Digital Alchemy.
A release of modern electroacoustic recordings of sonic works filled with exotic soundscapes.
Zreen Toyz and Arcane Waves are projects by the French artist JLHB (born in 1954). He started with classical training on piano and percussions, but the stifling conformity of the academy pushes him toward the world of improvised music. Along the way he encounters composers such as Luc Ferrari and İlhan Mimaroğlu, but he considers the improvised Electronic Music and the Free Jazz of the early 70s as the foundation of his sonorous experiments. Since his first pieces created in 1970, he works the sound material following inspiration of the moment, a raw and instinctive approach by stratification where any imperfection or sound incident become a harshness on which to hang on atmospheres or reflections. In this way, he creates impalpable and timeless landscapes where vibrations, noises, and collages tend to blurring the structure of the piece. His music is used for artistic exhibitions, contemporary choreographies, documentary movies and as ambient backgrounds for video games.
Inspired by the mystery of life. Jack Hertz manipulates sound to create intangible techno-organic impressions between music and noise. He has been composing and recording experimental music for more than 30 years. Generally, he is searching for a sonic middle ground between the real and the artificial. Utilizing computers, synthesizers, found objects, field recordings and digital effects. He designs his own instruments and effects with unique characteristics that create spaces and atmospheres a listener can explore. He finds all aspects of creating sound fascinating. From the early percussion instruments to the present day hardware and software innovations. He is particularly interested in sound synthesis of all kinds, especially Frequency Modulation.
