A trumpet player, composer and musical conceptualist, Jon Hassell's bisects a multitude of strands in the history of the avant-garde and the development of genuinely new forms of music. Having studied under Karl-Heinz Stockhausen in Cologne (alongside future members of the band Can), he played on the original recording of Terry Riley's In C (1968).A growing interest in the indigenous music ofother cultures led to the invention of his 'Fourth World' blend of different styles, which caught the ear of Brian Eno, who collaborated with Hassell on the Possible Musics album,and used many of the Fourth World ideas on his My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts album with David Byrne. He has played on albums by artists including Talking Heads, Peter Gabriel and Bjork, composed film soundtracks and contributed to theatre works. Jon continues to tour and make new music - he is currently collaborating with techno legends Moritz Von Oswald and Carl Craig for a proposed album on Tresor Records.
