I describe most of what I do as "music to walk by". I love the way having certain pieces of music playing as I walk around changes my perception of my surroundings, and my work is mostly an effort to consciously pick the flavour of experience. City centres can seem peaceful; a dark underpass can feel comforting; fields and trees can be disturbing.
Slow and warm electronica.
Theremins, synths, a double bass and a shuffly beat.
Being happy when things fall apart. Smile when you're broken.
don't know how to describe this. It starts with hard metallic beats but quickly breaks into something much softer and cheekier.
James Shuttleworth is a lecturer at Coventry University in the UK. He has been making noises with his computer for over a decade, although it's only been in the last year or so that he's had the guts to put forward the possibility that the noises he makes could be described as music by generous listeners.
James feels very uncomfortable writing about himself in the third person.
