Born in Denmark and currently studying in Cologne, Germany at the Academy of Arts and the Media, Jacob is exploring sound in art with a scientific approach. Parallel to his studies, he has been giving lectures on sound and space at the Royal Architect Academy and at the Art Academy in Copenhagen. Aside from academics, Jacob collaborates with various artists on installations and resonances and has performed in Asia, America and almost all parts of Europe. He collaborated with Philip Jeck on the CD \"Soaked\", after performing together at the Moers Jazz festival in Germany. They had never previously met. Jacob’s sound works focus on investigations into the potential musicality in hidden sound layers in the environment. In this context he has been capturing and exploring sounds from volcanic earth, ice, atmospheric phenomena, nuclear power plants and deserted places. Recording tools used are accelometers, hydrophones and home-made electromagnetic receivers.
