I agree with the previous comments, this man is a genius. His work can be very abstract but when it works boy does it work! head.phon is fascinating. His contribution to HH 100 is also notable. Respect to Harthouse for releasing his music which to my knowledge is quite unlike anything else that was around at the time.

One of the undiscovered gems of the early 90's, Jiri was making techno as if it was a style of music that had been around for decades, which was amazing in a scene that was so young at that time.

His finest moment for me was multiplex, the antithesis of an anthem, the tune burbles along with deep acid rumbles and a wonderfully crafted beat. Excellent atmospheric aural brain candy.

I'm in full agree with the comments above!
Jiri.Ceiver is a true Pioneer and Innovator.
Thanks to him for all these crazy shit!

Did anyone know what he is doing right now?

It's so sad that noone has managed to climb to jiri.ceiver's level within techno yet. All right, some of his work is kind of extreme and some of it just doesn't work out at all.
But at his best - he's a genius. Ambient or experimental doesn't describe his music well enough - "abstract" is far better.
Twist everything you think music is, upside down and inside out - and you have jiri.ceiver's music. Weird thing is, it's still music and can work pretty amazingly.

I don't think many people know his real name, but I know he has done some music for theater plays and art exhibitions after his Harthouse period.
"head.phon" is my favorite, together with "loom 1". "jig, amble & lisp" has it's good sides but some of it is slightly commercial, and some even more abstract/noisy.
I wish he'd consider making this crazy innovative techno music again!
