Offthesky (Corder Jason) compose une musique électronique à la fois étrange et captivante parfois associée à de l'"ambient" depuis un moment déjà. Né en 1977 dans le Kentucky (USA), il se souvient d'expérimentations atonales au piano à un âge très précoce - au grand dam de ses parents. Sa plongée dans le monde de la musique électronique s'est produite quand il commença à écouter les émissions de radio locale qui jouait une pléthore de hip hop et nouvelles musiques électroniques dans les années 90. Il commença alors à bidouiller sur des multipistes et trackers 8bit et plus tard approfondit des techniques plus avancées. Sa passion pour les instruments acoustiques de toutes sortes l'on naturellement conduit à les intégrer à sa musique. Musicien extrêmement prolifique, Offthesky a en plus de 10 ans de carrière publié sa musique sur de nombreux labels tels que Home Normal, Hibernate, 12k.term, Zymogen, IOD et SEM.

Offthesky (Jason Corder) has produced strange and exciting electronic music (often considered "ambient") for some time now. Born in 1977, in Kentucky (USA), he remembers experimenting with atonal noise structures on the piano at a very early age (to the slight chagrin of his parents). His dive into the world of electronic music occurred when he began taping/editing local radio shows that featured a plethora of hip hop and new electronic styles during the mid 90s. He then also began hacking away on 8bit tracker software and around the turn of the century upgraded his electronic arsenal to use more advanced sound design systems. His passion for acoustic instruments of all shapes and size has naturally led him to often integrate their colorful sound throughout his compositions. Over his 10+ year career, Offthesky has proven to be an extremely prolific musician releasing under various monikers on many labels such as Home Normal, Hibernate, 12k.term, Zymogen, IOD and SEM.
