Jorge Juan B. Wieneke V (aka similarobjects) born October 21, 1989 is a 24 year old multi-genre beat-maker/producer/laptop musician/experimental artist from the Philippine Islands. He produces electronic tracks of an ever evolving aesthetic of various genres showcasing his wide range of influences spanning from ambient,avant-garde, lo-fi, wierdpop, minimal, glitch, hip-hop, IDM, down-tempo to future beats, synth funk and chill trap resulting in a sound uniquely his own. 

The monicker "similarobjects" was a reference to Carl Jung's theory of collective unconscious. the young musician mentions that the name was born out of a meditation done on a Russian Nesting Doll where the idea of "similarobject within similarobject" was derived from.

"the best soundscapes are usually ones that have resulted from an artist’s exploration and immersion into a specific region of existence. What occurs is something that makes us feel familiar but is completely new at the same time, much like the foggy uncertainty of experiencing deja vu. Finding Astral Lovers, the newest tape by Similar Objects (Jorge Wieneke) curated by the Phillipines-based Number Line Records, is a fresh example of sound that sits in this territory." - http://headnodz.com/2012/01/similar-objects-finding-astral-lovers-mxt/
"A new year means new music from prolific Manila based artist and master beat maker Similar Objects. Jung is a present for Similar Objects' fans by way of being a Bandcamp exclusive for free download. Jung features old beats, new ideas and more of Similar Objects terrific instrumental electronic music. Ambient and chill, with flourishes of trip hop and IDM, Jung continues Similar Objects' run of eminently listenable and enjoyable albums." - http://floorshimezipperboots.blogspot.com/2012/01/similar-objects-jung.html

"Ambient beat maker Similar Objects hits it deep on his recent album, Finding Astral Lovers, which its record label Number Line Records says is “written as a kind of dream journal; the album’s eleven tracks chronicle what Wieneke refers to as astral adventures or what skeptics might call “lucid dreams.” It is like being swept up by a school of rainbow fish to journey through the underwater wonders of Atlantis." - http://www.thebriolife.com/blog/similar-objects-a-small-chord-spiders-web/
"FindingAstralLovers" released mid december last year still made it  as one of the Philippines' top 30 releases of 2011 based on Gig.ph. - http://www.gig.ph/2011/30-releases-of-2011/

"Similar Objects is from the Philippines. He has become one of my favourite ambient experimental artists after his previous album release which I posted about here. This new release still carries his strong attention to percussion, with this strangely titled track being a good example of that. The melodic elements are polite visitors in a kick and snare dominated world." - http://lifeaquaticblog.com/post/14431189038/similar-objects-a-small-chord-like-a-spider
(The Limits of Thought, FindingAstralLovers and Jung) featured on EverythingisChemical's "collections of best free music lying around the internet" - http://everythingischemical.com/
"Similar Objects, aka Manila artist/producer Jorge Juan Wieneke V, has released his new album Finding Astral Lovers. Like its FZB reviewed predecessor, The Limits of Thought, Finding Astral Lovers sees Wieneke blending elements of house, IDM, electronica and dubstep into a lush set electronic tonal poems. The album features eleven tracks of beat heavy astral landscapes and airy synth pads." - http://floorshimezipperboots.blogspot.com/2011/12/similar-objects-finding-astral-lovers.html

"ambgqty" ranked as one of the Philippines TOP 5 ALBUMS of 2011 in based on "Pulp" Magazine.
"Beat-haze producer Similar Objects describe the sound of their black aircon sober EP as "tali vibes/numbers and the abstract truth". Head over to their Bandcamp and listen for yourself to see if you can decode what the hell they're talking about-- and grab the whole thing for free too, while you're at it. Here's a standout from that EP to keep your vocal-melted mind satiated" - PitchForkMedia http://pitchfork.com/forkcast/14871-2-bonsai-kids/
