Describe Your Sound

I make 3 types of music. Drone ambient, harsh noise and experimental plunderphonics in the style of V/Vm where I take pop songs from the mid 90s and distort them with filters, effects and noise to create a disturbing atmosphere.

Formation

I've been obsessed with music all my life as far back as I can remember. I started listening to ambient music when I was 9. I listened to mostly alternative and IDM during my teenage years but started listening to different subgeneres of ambient music when I was 18 such as dark ambient, drone ambient and field recordings. I then started getting heavy into noise music, especially harsh noise, when I turned 19. I always knew one day I would make my own music as I spent my entire youth listening to thousands of different bands and building my music collection (which now stands at 25,000 songs). But I never learnt to play instruments properly and didn't have the attention span or money to do it. So I started screwing around with Virtual DJ and eventually, Sony ACID Music Studio to create ambient, plunderphonics and harsh noise music.

Influences

My biggest influence is clearly V/Vm also known as Leyland Kirby or The Caretaker. I got obsessed with his plunderphonics experiments from Sick Love and The Green Door so decided to have a shot at it myself. My other influences are very diverse and draw from a wide spectrum of different genres. They include Aphex Twin, John Wiese, William Basinksi, Belong, Tim Hecker. Oneohtrix Point Never, Yellow Swans, Gas, Kevin Drumm and Ryoki Ikeda.

Current Activity

I just released 3 albums on my Bandcamp, two of them for free. I am currently in the process of trying to buy a laptop as I will need it to perform. I work at East Fremantle Domino's in the meantime and make music sporadically in my spare time between work and other activities.
