Team member and musician

Hailing from Milan but born and raised in the Maidstone area, I have been interested in electronic music for 35 years, programming and playing synthesizers, starting up in a humble bedroom studio back in 1983.

Whilst in Milan, I acquired  numerous vintage synthesizers and associated equipment, building up a sizeable studio, much to the annoyance of my ex-wife.

I continue to take a keen interest in music, studio engineering, music production and currently learning

to play the bass guitar.
