ABOUT

If you want a real bio I can give you the basics quickly now. Studied masters at Royal College of Music, somebody at BBC Radio 3 once said something nice about my work, won a competition once. Done.

 

In all honesty I don’t really think my work warrants a biography. Certainly not one that for some reason is written in the third-person. I’m basically a person who on occasion makes something creative out of sound. Why do I do this? No idea really. Let’s face it, the human race is but a tiny blip in time in the grand scheme of things. One day we’ll both be dead and for the vast majority of time everything we’ve done will cease to exist or be remembered. I find that quite refreshing. I’m using my tiny time blip to create sound stuff that pleases me. It’s not really intended for anyone else but others are welcome to come and explore these creations with me. Don’t like it? That’s really fine with the whole scale of time and space considered.

 

I'm currently quite interested in physical aspects of sound (waves, clashes, position, direction) but am also toying with adding beats to various things and seeing what I can make. This is just my way of exploring the universe with my little bit of time existing, because why the hell not? So please enjoy my little moments of cheerful nihilism. Or not.
