Darker shades of ambience and classic electronic sounds, with Berlin style sequencing and a lo-fi edge, using vintage analog and digital synths and old-school effects. Nostalgic space music in which cosmic space is seen in mirrors of emotional space. Electronic soundscapes inhabited - or haunted - by humanity.
fluXus refers to the intended flow of the music, within one piece, and from one piece to another - but also to an awareness of the Fluxus art movement, with found sounds and randomised elements allowed to become co-creator: serendipity leaving room for the 'divine' to enter.
The fluXus project began in the late 90s and has performed at arts centre events, as support for Banco de Gaia, and others.
Music by fluXus has been featured on Star's End, Ultima Thule, Music With Space, Musical Starstreams, Atmospheres, Sequences, Ambient Zone, Galactic Travels, Alien Air Music, Waveman's Underground, and Hans Prisma’s Superclean Dreammachine, and reviewed in Audion and Electronic Sound magazines.
Influences include Froese, Baumann, and Schulze, John Surman, Nico, 20th Century classical music, and the bits between the tunes on J-M Jarre albums.
The latest fluXus album “Orbit and Shine” was released on the Castles In Space subscription library, in digital and 12” vinyl formats.
Born on the same day as Ralph Vaughan Williams and Aleister Crowley, I currently live and record in a cottage in Cornwall once owned by 'Sgt Howie.'
