For the next three years I played with anyone who would have me. During this time I began giving solo performances using only natural found objects (stones, shells, bones, driftwood, pine cones, etc), as soundmakers, a practice which continues to today. Eventually I stopped using the name Hands To. In 1999, the Animist Orchestra was founded.
The AO focuses on making music that hopefully bypasses our individual egos. Most of my previous work could be interpreted as being 'idea-based'. I find that most of my work nowadays is sound-based. I believe this is due to my growing interest in listening, in what happens when one listens, and my concomitant disinterest in contextualizing sound." - Jeph Jerman http://www.discogs.com/artist/Jeph+Jerman http://www.timesquotidian.com/2011/09/05/listen/ http://www.kaon.org/jeph_jerman/index.php https://soundcloud.com/jeph-jerman http://www.23five.org/archives/jephjerman.html http://windsmeasurerecordings.net/ap/jj.html http://archive.org/search.php?query=creator%3A%22Jeph%20Jerman%22 Read more on Last.fm.
