Jack Hertz has been playing, composing and recording experimental music for more than 30 years. My first experiments with sound began with analog reel machines, microphones, percussion and a Casio VL-Tone. My first true synthesizer was the Alpha Syntauri digital synthesizer that was was hosted by an Apple IIe PC. The steep learning curve exposed me to a universe of concepts nearly a decade before others. Soon after, I was introduced to Yamaha’s DX7 and the vast capabilities of FM synthesis that I have been working with ever since.
