J. Ronald Smith

1983 would be a monumental year when J. Ronald Smith, a Seattle area based American ambient electronic recording artist, was introduced to the nationally syndicated radio program, Hearts of Space, created by Stephen Hill. Smith was awe-inspired by music composers such as Micheal Stearns, Brian Eno, Steve Roach and the late Evangelos Papathanassiou of Vangelis. Hill’s early broadcasts of these electronic music pioneers instilled a passion within Smith and opened a window of possibilities for him in this new ambient genre of music. In 2021, Smith founded Terminus Void to share this passion that has been 40 years in the making.

From Terminus Void’s debut album, Interstellar, to the latest on-label studio release, Apeiron, (2023) on Groove Unlimited, Smith‘s music enjoys decisive reviews and a worldwide listening audience. His music has been featured on acclaimed programs such as Hearts of Space with Stephen Hill, Ambient Zone, Stars End with Chuck van Zyl, Night Tides with Renee Blanche, Last Frontier Radio and many more.

J. Ronald Smith is currently working on his next studio album.
