A transformer of lost and found sounds, Jelinek turns rare musical samples and field recordings into distinctly absorbing, complexly textured abstract creations. An artist of collage and processing, he remains on a conceptual quest for sonic interrelation and metamorphosis, navigating through art-house-house to dulcet experimental sound designed narratives which can be heard across a body of work going back more than 20 years.

Style

Minimalist ambient techno and microhouse built around crackling vintage jazz samples, early electronic music and, most recently, collaged celebrity vocalizations
