Spacetime Continuum

Ambient techno innovator Jonah Clear has recorded many albums and EPs as Spacetime Continuum and played a significant part in consolidating the SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA experimental ambient and techno moments through his Reflective imprint. A London indigenous and an acidity jazz drummer before getting into his profession in digital music, Clear was an in-demand program drummer before rigours from the golf club scene as well as the mawkish obsolescence from the genre got him tinkering with additional designs. Glomming onto ambient and techno being a DJ, Clear was a founding person in the regular Spacetime parties, in a hologram stock in London and web host to such early brand-new ambient luminaries as Mixmaster Morris, David Moufang, and Dr. Atmo. Clear still left London for America in the first ’90s, settling in SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, where he set up his Reflective label and documented the majority of his function up to now. Although that function continues to be split over a variety of task headings (Emit Ecaps, Alien Community, Reagenz, Electro Harmonix, among others), his most regularly visible function continues to be as Spacetime Continuum. Clear signed a nonexclusive multi-album cope with Astralwerks in 1992 and released his initial full-length function — a live documenting of a cooperation with writer Terrence McKenna and didgeridoo participant Stephen Kent — the next year. The generally ambient Ocean Biscuit implemented in 1994, and premiered with the Fax label in European countries (Clear has recorded several collaborative tasks for Fax). Emit Ecaps, released in early 1996, came back to Sharp’s dancefloor root base, incorporating components of home, techno, and jungle. In addition, it spawned a remix record, Remit Recaps, offering function by Autechre, Plaid, among others. And a smattering of Sharp-related produces (like the collectible Flurescence EP), the Reflective label released albums by Subtropic, Velocette, Child Spatula (aka Mike Paradinas), and One Cell Orchestra, and a blast of 12-inches. Another Spacetime Continuum full-length, Increase Fine Zone, made an appearance in 1999.
