Album Notes
Jeff Greinke is a musician, composer, performer, sound sculptor, and visual artist who is known worldwide for his unique sound. Through a highly developed process of layering, Jeff composes and performs music rich in texture, depth, mood, and subtle detail. Using various acoustic and electronic instruments, found sounds, and extended studio techniques, Jeff sculpts sound worlds that conjure a strong sense of place, hovering somewhere between the exotic and the familiar.

Jeff Greinke began composing and performing music in 1980 while studying meteorology at Pennsylvania State University. After moving to Seattle in 1982, Jeff formed the production company and recording label, INTREPID, through which he produced his first LP, Cities in Fog. He has since released twenty other recordings on various U.S. and European labels. His most recent work is entitled Weather from Another Planet, released in June 2003 on FWD, a label and distribution network he co-owns with three other musicians. Jeff's music can also be heard on numerous compilation recordings. He has composed music for film, video, dance, theatre, radio, and art installations. His music was used as the soundtrack for the trailer of Ron Howard's film The Missing. Jeff has toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe and has performed in China, Canada, and Mexico. He has also been a member of numerous ensembles and is founder of the group LAND, featuring Lesli Dalaba (trumpet), Dennis Rea (guitar), Bill Rieflin (drums), and Fred Chalenor (bass). LAND toured China in 1996, which included playing the prestigious Beijing International Jazz Festival. They have released three albums. Jeff's current ongoing project is a collaboration with former Sky Cries Mary vocalist Anisa Romero called Hana. In April 2001 they released their second album entitled Omen. Jeff currently resides in Tucson Arizona with his wife Isabel Amorous.

Wired Magazine

"Back in 1985, Jeff Greinke released an LP of ambient industrial music titled "Cities In Fog". The sound of industry and contemporary cityscapes - grinding metal, pounding machinery - were tempered and processed in the studio, producing a removed impressionist haze. Though the imagery was disturbing, even nightmarish, it was equally compelling, seductive, and undeniably beautiful. This little-known gem was the starting point of a fascinating musical trek for Greinke. His vision has expanded, and his recent work is exotic and atmospheric.
Greinke rediscovered ambient industrial while contributing to an anthology (Sombient's "Throne of Drones"). This unorthodox "Cities In Fog" reissue includes the original album, remastered, plus a sequel. The second installment takes a new look at an older genre by an artist who has grown and matured. "Cities In Fog 2" is as evocative and evanescent as ever, but with an atmosphere that is less oppressive. With the revival of ambient, these disks prove Greinke to be a true visionary."
--Dean Suzuki, Wired Magazine


"Greinke's first LP presents a mature set of dark landscapes that are distant and beautiful in their sparseness and subtlety. His hauntingly exotic music is most immediately comparable to Eno's 'On Land'." --Unsound
