THE MUSIC OF JEREMY A. PURSELL

ABOUT
Jeremy Allen Pursell (born November 28th, 1976) is an American artist, designer, and composer. Jeremy was born in Joliet, Illinois just southwest of Chicago. After moving eastward in his teens, Pursell played numerous gigs between Pittsburgh, PA and Charleston, WV. Over subsequent years, he played guitars, keyboards, and sang in various bands. He performed in rock, metal, blues, and industrial groups.

illrecur ['il-ri-'kər] is an American music project and pseudonym, founded in 1997 and adopted by Jeremy Allen Pursell. As its main producer, singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist, Pursell is the only official member of illrecur and remains entirely responsible for its course. illrecur's music explores a wide range of genres.

Pursell's passion for electronic, film, and world music led him to further his range of instruments, styles, and knowledge in equipment. His interest in psychology and human behavior pushed his music deeper into work with mental states and intelligent atmospheres. As a multi-instrumentalist, sound and texture became important targets. From '94 to '97, he spent most of his time learning and tinkering with soundscapes; creating and modifying instruments and FX machines.

Since adopting the moniker, he has created many pieces of music and collaborated with several artists and organizations globally. In 2013, Pursell moved to Columbus, OH to continue work on new music and pursue both business and artistic ventures.
