What’s your background?

Welder florist postman now artist.

What influences you artistically?

The sleeve notes from throbbing gristles’s heathen earth cd

“The quality and content of this album should not be compared to conventional live or studio recordings. The throbbing gristle repertoire consisted of a diverse range of intentional (and unintentional) tonalities, timbres including: tape hiss, phase errors, white noise, distortion, clicks, pops, extreme high and low frequencies and occasionally silence. Please bear this in mind when listening to these recordings”.

I’ve applied these words in to how make my films.
