Tillman Jex is a Berlin based music maker and sound designer who holds narrative as the central focus of his creative outputs and collaborations. He sees the importance of narrative to be essential in time based art forms, as narrative is intrinsic to our perception of life and can therefore be seen as the medium of communication in which we achieve the deepest connections.

As well as releasing his own music, Tillman has collaborated both locally and internationally on short films, A/V installations, virtual reality products, been invited to publicly speak on music composition and performance and has received state funded commissions for the composition of new work.

In 2017 Tillman moved to Berlin in search of broader opportunities. 2020 saw him step into the role of Studio Manager & Head Engineer at the 4DSOUND spatial audio studio, Monom, a resident artist of the collective Eclectique Berlin and a creative team member of Luchs.us, a unique production company innovating forms of creative communication within 3D spaces both physical and virtual.

Artists Tillman has worked along side include Robert Henke, Simon Finn, Sebastian Welker, Alexi Paräela, Maarten Vos, Timur Novikov and Burkhard Dallwitz.

Variety is seen as the spice of creative life for Tillman. He therefore welcomes you to get in touch via the contact page if there’s anything you would like to discuss.
