Tillman Jex is a composer of ambient, electro-acoustic and hypnotic music based in Berlin. His compositions are designed to transport the listener into a landscape of dreamlike imagery, allowing hypnotic and transcendental introspection of their own mind.

His interests lie on the axis between:

  • Electro-acoustic music and its innately serialist nature,
  • Max/MSP as occupying the space between conception and inception of musical creation/performance,
  • Virtual Reality as a tool that makes reaching past our consciousness easier,
  • Hypnosis and meditation as an example that all is not what it seems.

As well as releasing his own music, he’s collaborated both locally and internationally on short films, audio/visual installations, virtual reality products and been invited to publicly speak on music composition and performance.
Tillman studied his Bachelor of Music Composition at Melbourne University (2014-2016) in his home town of Melbourne, Australia and as of 2018 is living in Berlin.

The blog on this website is a documentation of projects, thoughts, findings, recommendations and ramblings. Tillman writes these posts both for you and for himself, in the hope that some useful, interesting, thought inspiring and/or enjoyable content will be discovered.
