Synthesizers - Bastian Jermutus
STARSEED SOUNDSCAPES SERIES
Bastian Jermutus was born in 1958 in Berlin, Germany. In 1980 he began manipulating wave forms, creating his own synthesizer patches. He played on a hand-built prototype of a PPG synthesizer, one of the first digital synthesizers, designed by Wolfgang Palm in Hamburg. As a young teenager he was influenced greatly by the German electronic avant garde, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Kraftwerk, Mythos, as well as American composers Terry Reily and Philip Glass. This uncommon thread, an emphasis on the quality of sound itself, led Bastian on a journey similar to that described in the writings of Peter Michael Hamel, minimalistic musician and ground-breaking spiritual musicologist. Along with the sacred geometry of sound, Bastian embraced the Klangfarbenmelodie, named by Arnold Schoenberg, but claimed by composers whose experiments with the color of music have led to a reawakening to the powerful nature of sound vibration.
