Waveshaper

Waveshaper (CA)

A prolific sound maker rigged with analog synths and digital circuitry, Toronto electronic musician and sound designer Jakob Thiesen makes glittering, contemplative ambient techno woven from electroacoustic experiments, studied drum riffs and organic found sounds. While the hundreds of sound effects Thiesen has created uncannily reflect real world phenomena, his music as Waveshaper is an artist’s stylized, elaborate impression of that same world of noise and melody. As well as heading sound design and sound editing with Jason Amm (aka Solvent) for the elucidating synthesizer documentary “I Dream of Wires,” featured at MUTEK 2014, Thiesen co-founded label and studio Obsolete Components with Matt Thibideau (who played MUTEK 2012), Mark Thibideau and Scott Stanley. Drawing on aesthetics similar to his collaborative duos SelfService with Rebecca McLellan and dropfile with Neil Wiernick, Thiessen’s Waveshaper live ambient set traverses the bounds of minimal techno and mesmerizes with hypnotic abstract visuals.
