Jesper Skaaning (aka Acustic) is a Danish electronic musician, producer and film composer. He started his career as a guitarist in various experimental punk bands in the early 1980s and was inspired by European electropop and early electronic Music, especially by Kraftwerk. At that time he formed a band, Acustisk Ungdom, from which he later took his name.
He formed the Future 3 electronic trio together with Anders Remmer (aka Dub Tractor) and Thomas Knak (aka Opiate) in 1994. He is also a member of People Press Play (which is Future 3 plus Sara Savery) and has a duo project with Remmer, Jesper & Anders aka Recycler 202.
With his sense of harmony, and his consciously minimalist approach, Skaaning constructs a sound which is forthcoming without trying too hard to please.
At the moment Jesper is working together with guitar and bassplayer Djon on the sideproject Spring, which is a return to more guitar oriented material with discrete use of vocals.
