Welcome To ambientgeneration

A self confessed geek, who struggles with his obsessions of ambient electronica, astronomy, and photography; writing music for the thinking introvert.

MUSIC

Creator “Creativity is a wild mind and a disciplined eye” Dorothy Parker

Student “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams” Franklin D. Roosevelt

Introvert “I think a lot, but I don’t say much” Anne Frank

Meditator “It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart” Mahatma Gandhi

Musician “I know that the most joy in my life has come to me from my violin” Albert Einstein

Improviser and Genius <The music of Charlie Parker> Charlie Parker

 

I want to write music that reflects those I admire.  Occasionally people email me  about my music – “thanks for helping me to get through my PhD”, “I’ve been teaching meditation in New York City … your music is just right for this”, “I love listening to it while driving.  Somethings put it on a repeating loop and just drive”,  I listen to it as it helps my creative design …  And when I receive these emails I hope that I could be succeeding.

 

I write melodic electronica influenced by breakbeat, techno, film soundtracks, vocoders, beautiful synthesizers, the melancholy of Rachmaninov, the phrasing of the genius Saxophonist Charlie Parker, the guitar of the legendary Prince; but most of all my emotions as I live an ordinary life.

ASTRONOMY

Since 2014 with a cheap telescope and inexpensive DSLR camera I have been observing the night sky – our window to the universe that surrounds us – with wonder, and capturing its magnificence, so I never have to be without it.

PHOTOGRAPHY

In 2016 I started capturing images from around Manchester with a small compact camera.  So much I had never noticed before.
