Most of his early soundwork was sampler and tape loop based, though slowly evolved from electro-acoustic pieces to environmental recordings with very little to no manipulation or electronic processing using only natural found objects like stones, shells, bones, driftwood, pinecones, etc. The Hands To - Cipher 7” from 1995 was an inspirational release for me personally and I always considered Jerman as a key figure in the grey zone between academic sound art and primitive noise. After seeing Jeph perform live a couple of years ago I was impressed by the sound spectrum he created with just a few humble materials and it reinforced my enthusiasm for his work which eventually led to this publication.
