The New Zealand-based former frisbee champion is an acclaimed production designer and composer for theatre, films and exhibitions. and a regular contributor to the Kompakt catalogue. He’s a fixture of the label’s much-loved Pop Ambient compilations, contributing tracks to the last seven in series. In 2003 he released his debut album, Fearsome Jewel.
The follow-up, Between Buildings And Trees, is a similarly wistful and reflective work, rooted in the ambient and neo-classical tradition, with piano figuring strongly in tracks like ‘Light On Sea (From Above The World So High)’ and ‘Net To Catch A Ghost’.
