In the early 1970s Jaeger established a digital sound synthesis facility at the University of Toronto, one of the first in Canada. In 1971 he founded the Canadian Electronic Ensemble, together with David Grimes, Larry Lake and Jim Montgomery. Many of Jaeger’s compositions combine acoustic instruments with electronic music media, but he also composes for standard instrumental forces.
