Described as...

A creator of instrumental music primarily using synthesizers at present but future works will be more multi-instrumental in nature adding bass, electric and acoustic guitars plus percussion to the sound. Currently he defines his genre as Alternative Ambient: ambient because it can act as straightforward background music and alternative, since unlike most ambient music, it includes melodic and rhythmic elements. Within this somewhat catchall description are also flavourss of retro-electro, experimental and minimalist sounds.
