Jakob is a composer and music producer from Austria based in Vienna/Salzburg.

His musical approach focuses on up-building ambient textures, carrying melodies consisting of heavily modulated sounds. Jakob's work includes pieces from ambient to neoclassic but also more sounddesign-focused experimental music.

He has participated in various multimedia productions and collaborations and produced music for several short films as well as one feature film.

Under his alias "Windtal", Jakob works on music influenced by artists such as Sam Slater, Nils Frahm and Philip Glass. A great part of his inspiration derives from nature, which he expresses by creating uplifting and relieving harmonies which often emerge into violent and powerful textures.

Jakob uses diverse acoustic instruments, analogue synthesizers, and foley recordings that he strongly mangles in Ableton Live.
