Armed with a battery of analog synthesizers, drum machines, and effects, Jonas writes music that is at times stark and spare and at others lush and all-encompassing; all the while keeping an underlying rhythmic pulse just beneath the surface.
Jonas Reinhardt represents a love affair between analog electronics, sweeping atmospherics, and driving motorik beats. Combined together, these elements create soundtracks to an inner-eyelid space epic that never was. He has released music with Kranky, Not Not Fun / 100% Silk, Kraak, and Great Pop Supplement and been featured in The Wire, XLR8R, VICE, FADER, Self-Titled, Ad Hoc, and Dusted among others.
Jonas Reinhardt was the recipient of the Bay Guardian 2008 Goldie Award for Outstanding Local Discovery. His music has been featured in the Tate Modern, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and SF MOMA.
