About the Creator
Will has been creating ambient/experimental/electronica for around six years. In which time he spent a month in India recording soundscapes and later composing with this material. This in turn triggered a love for the use of environmental sounds within musical composition, which now plays a key part within his own work.
Will also includes the manipulation of live instruments such as bass, guitar and piano with the use of different technologies to develop a unique sound.
In 2006 he released his debut album â€˜My Wife and Iâ€™ through â€˜White Label Musicâ€™ and in February 2007 he took part in â€˜White Label Musicâ€™s sonic weekend. A gathering of 18 musicians that had never met who recorded a full length album in a weekend at a hotel in Swanage. This has also been released through â€˜White Label Musicâ€™.
As well as his solo work Will collaborates with artists such as â€˜Throwing Snowâ€™ in there project â€˜Will it Snowâ€™ and with â€˜Jashâ€™ as â€˜The Pillowmenâ€™. Other ventures include the collaboration â€˜E.S.N.â€™ who are planning a European tour this autumn and Willâ€™s other band â€˜Kabuki Monoâ€™. Will is also involved with â€˜a future withoutâ€™ a new innovative Bristol/Bath based record label with an organic diverse sound.
