Solo project featuring dark electronic instrumental music with cinematic/gametrack elements. styles vary, mixing genres such as Industrial, Drum and Bass and Hard Trance with ethnic and symphonic elements to create musical soundscapes.
I've always been passionate about music. I have a bit of classical piano and over 20 years experience as a guitar player in various styles. Started producing electronic music in 2006. I am also active on the Acid Planet site (http://www.acidplanet.com/artist.asp?songs=571984&T=7014), and to a lesser extent myspace (www.myspace.com/blackice9dnb). I have had two tracks included on the "Opening Windows" series of CDs, 'Aenigmata' (vol 3) and 'Beyond the Obsidian Sands' (vol 4).
Through the SoundClick 'critics corner' forum, I've had two tracks rated 'must have' by the prolific Steve Gilmore:
