"The Art Of Sound is the sound of one man..... who strives to put melody back in the forefront of songs without words. Gentle, mellow rhythmic lines that interwine with soulful melodies.. you find yourself humming hours later..."
The Art Of Sound was originally formed back in England in the mid 70's as a group of people who wanted to promote the use of synthesizers in both modern and classical music. Later on the group split up and went their separate ways but one founder member, Nigel Sixsmith, carried on working, under the name "The Art Of Sound", writing and performing music for the Synthesizer for over 30 years..
This webpage has been set up for him to share some of the many songs he has written in the hope that others will find as much enjoyment listening to his music as he has making it..
I only look forwards.. never back :)
Only occasionally since the late 80's when I moved over the pond to the USA.
Many influences but I suppose the main ones are David Sancious, Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Chris Issac and The Edge..
I use Logic as a multitrack recorder/mixer but almost everything is played live with minimal post editing :)
Sadly, it was time to say goodbye to my Korg Oasys. For the last 12 months i found myself using it less and less and so now i only use Logic and Soft Synths/Samples to create my music...
