The music I’ve created is for my own enjoyment. My day job is in the computer software industry, and I like to use noise-canceling headphones and this kind of music to concentrate on my work. If other people like or want to use this music in a particular way, I’m happy to make it available.
Sometimes I get asked what artists inspire or influence my music. That’s a difficult question to answer, as I’m always listening to new/different things. On a large scale, I suppose Brian Eno’s work from the mid 70s to the late 80s, guitarist Bill Nelson’s home recordings since the late 70s, In A Silent Way by Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, Bud Powell, Loscil, Fennesz, Harold Budd, and most of the oeuvre of David Sylvian – especially his 1988 collaboration with Holger Czukay, “Plight & Premonition” – particularly the track “Plight (The Spiralling of Winter Ghosts)”.
