Biography

Since the days of the mighty Amiga I’ve been making things that go beep.  Starting in OctaMED and progressing through ImpulseTracker to Reason and Ableton, I’ve supplimented those beeps with ever deeper bass and beefier drums.  My musical manifesto (if I were to pretend to ever having had one) would be to slot everything together like lego, so the layers compliment and contrast, but don’t drown each other out.

Growing up my parents listened to a lot of Pink Floyd and Neil Diamond, against which I rebelled my way into Aphex Twin, Orbital and Depeche Mode.  Somehow it all got mixed up in my head and has shaped my tastes such that melodies will always rule, but with the iron fist of powerful rhythm.  It all seems to work, somehow.

My musical ambitions are to finish more albums (for I am slow and perfectionisty) and to play live gigs more often. A man can dream…
