Tillman Jex is a composer and sound designer who centeres himself in the Ambient music genre. He moved to Berlin in 2017 after finishing his Bachelor of Music Composition studies at Melbourne University and as of January 2020 does additional composition and sound design work at Monom, a spatial audio studio in Berlin.
Tillman’s approach to ambient music is to create what he dubs “hypnotic music designed for transcendental voyaging”. He takes inspiration from archetypal images as well as the narrative of hypnotic induction techniques and uses these to build stories that create overarching structures in his compositions.
As well as releasing his own music, Tillman has collaborated both locally and internationally on short films, A/V installations, virtual reality products and been invited to publicly speak on music composition and performance.
You can find a selected choice of projects, work experience and awards on the curriculum vitae page.
The blog on his website is a documentation of thoughts, findings and recommendations mainly pertaining to topics of meditation, social change and the internet economy. Tillman writes these posts both for you to discover and for himself to consolidate. Feel free to get in touch via the contact page if there’s anything you would like to discuss.
