On Music Process.1.Hols_444 asks: In recent interviews you appear warmer. Has age has lifted the strain and pressure of the creative process? Does your high stature allow you to relax a little? Or is the pressure to explore even more always a factor? I'm more curious about the personality behind music. As I perceive it, the main reason that people ask questions concerned with the personality of a composer is to try to form some sort of background against which the music may be contextualised. Indeed, it seems to me that a proper understanding may not even be desirable for most listeners. 2.Stickfigure8 asks: I've been making electronic music for six years and playing the guitar for 11 years. 3.Mrkvm23 asks: I'm curious in general about the process of putting together a Squarepusher album.

Q - Chris Cunningham and Richard James did the Flex piece at the RA; you, Jamie and other WARP artists are doing the Ether thing. What does the “art world” have to offer ravers and vice versa? The first thing is that the "art world" isn't quite desperate enough to try to incorporate ravers into itself yet. However it seems that amongst other things I am now seen as something other than a raver, which is of course perfectly true - it is just as ridiculous to be bracketed as a raver as it is an "artist".

I have never composed for an orchestra and I don't actually know what I'm going to do yet, but I imagine that it will soon become obvious. I am probably not the best person to ask as I know comparatively little about professors of modern music. Squarepusher. DnB 1996 (LolaDaMusica) part1: Squarepusher. Squarepusher. Squarepusher is the principal pseudonym adopted by Tom Jenkinson, a UK-based recording artist.


His compositions draw on a number of influences including drum and bass, acid house, jazz and electroacoustic music. His recordings are typified by a combination of electronic sound sources, live instrumental playing and digital signal processing. He is the brother of Ceephax Acid Crew (Andrew Jenkinson). Early life[edit] Tom Jenkinson was born in January 1975 and grew up in Chelmsford, Essex. Much of his early experience of music was from scanning through various radio stations for anything that caught his ear irrespective of style or genre, and he was also fascinated by radio static and amplitude modulation artefacts on the Short Wave band. At the age of 11, Tom bought a guitar, which was a 3/4 size nylon-strung classical. Aphex Twin. Aphex twin - Google Images. Aphex Twin.
