Jacob Trombetta is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, and software engineer. After leaving his hometown, Mingo Junction, Ohio, he toured with Merge Record's Richard Buckner and Suicide Squeeze Record's The Six Parts Seven. In between tours he received an undergraduate degree in music and film and a masters degree in applied mathematics.
      Discrete Spectrum is the home of many of his projects. Currently he curates a concrete music-field recording series for Discrete Spectrum and lectures on modern music at local bars. He has lectured in both mathematics and electro-acoustic music at the University of Akron and appeared in a new media series alongside Golan Levin and Mark America.
      He regularly releases and plays music with his bossa-pop band Comfort Clouds, composes for his minimal-spectral project Ondelette, and releases electro-pop revenge albums under his own name. His newest electro-acoustic work is the 24 hour piece, Moby Dick + Beethoven. It is the first in a series of works for Discrete Spectrum's Combined Classics Series.
      His upcoming solo album, Waveguide, is a revenge album planted firmly in the mythos of a dying mill town, much like the town he once called home. Mingo Junction, his hometown, was in fact the same dying mill town which appears in the 1978 film The Deer Hunter.
      When not working on music, he does software engineering at a machine vision company and creative consultanting for Akron Film + Pixel.
