News January 2015...

This web site contains, hopefully, some interesting stuff on my electronic music and my unique equipment designs.  

Over the years I have both gigged and recorded  extensively with most of this equipment. It has greatly helped me create my own brand of unique electronic music.   I’ve completed  13 albums so far, some of which have been released  by independent labels some on my own label. Full information  and sound clips can be found in the “Album Sales” section of this site.

 

From a childhood interest in anything electronic, as a teenager I got passionate about the electric guitar. Later in the early 1970’s a radical new wave of synthesiser music was happening. It was so different to guitar bass and drums. It sounded new and exciting  but, like many, I had little money to buy expensive synthesiser equipment to create my own. This desire led me down the only path available to me: to learn  about electronic music and how to make synthesiser equipment. Building on my previous basic  knowledge of electronics, I slowly learnt, built things, copied and modified stuff by trial and error and experimented. as funds would allow. Around 1978  I started performing live with my synthesiser equipment  A couple of years later I  formed with Phil Clogg (a local guitarist songwriter) what I believe  historically was the first electronic band in the UK to have an interactive computer  controlled sequencer and electronic percussion unit for its entire backing sound. If  you would like to find out more or hear what the duo sounded like in those days click here. Info on the sequencer  can be found in the synthesiser section.

 

Many short demo MP3 sound clips are spread throughout the site to add extra content to the words, photos and graphics. I hope you find something of interest here musically, technically or even historically.

 

  Best wishes,

Sound clips and browser troubles !!....

Different Web browsers, I’ve found, unfortunately will treat sound clips and background music quite differently which is a pain so sound clips may not open a nice little box on your particular web browser. With the increasing use of tablets and mobiles, operating system types are increasing, which doesn’t help.  More info on this on my BLOG page.
