WDIY's Space Music Program airs every Thursday at 11:04 pm.
Andy started playing music the moment he picked up something slightly resembling
a musical instrument. It happened to be one of those blowy things with a little
keyboard down the side and Andy was three. He upgraded to a miniature Bontempi organ
with an internal fan so loud, it was like switching on a Harrier jump jet.
Fortunately, he further upgraded to his grandmother’s harmonium, a couple of
organs and finally, some years later, to a Korg MS20 and an Akai GX400D tape machine!
From these humble beginnings, Andy learned (the hard way!) how to put his thoughts into music. More gear upgrades and some bad singing along the way finally led to his first release, Replicant, in 1992.
Binar is Andy's collaboration with Paul Nagle. Binar put out a fair bit of material and Andy had much fun in the process!
In 2009, Andy began a prolific round of recording. You hear the results on the Vanguard albums and Adagiometry EPs. In the last quarter of 2016, he began releasing major suite-length works consisting of long interconnected pieces, each suite being around 3.5hrs long and consisting of 15 pieces.
When Andy's not composing, he's either cooking dinner, playing with the cat, playing EVE Online, World of Warships, or watching endless drivel on Youtube.
