Personal profile


Andrew begun making experimental music in 1997, working at that time in collaboration with artist such as Mark Springer and the High Llamas. After a 10 year hiatus working in visual arts, Andrew returned to music in earnest in 2011 as experimental electronic artist Nimzo-Indian and noise and free jazz project SAD MAN.

Over the past few years he has released multiple albums both through the Belgium based OFF Records and his own label. His music compositions have been played on BBC Radio 3 Late Junction, BBC Radio 6 Music, Resonance FM and NTS Radio. His work has been written about in the Wire Magazine, Mojo Magazine, Creative Review, and music blogs Booooooom, Lost at e-Minor, Monolith Cocktail, the Digital Fix and Son of Marketing.

As art duo The ‘Habsburgs’ he has exhibited at the MAC, Birmingham and Hull City of Culture 2017 project Fountain 17.

As art project OHMMM he has performed at Axis Arts Centre, The Mac, The Public and as part of the ‘In-Time’ experimental music symposium, Coventry.

He has built and exhibited various musical objects, including mini guitars and turntables at the Third International Illustration Research Symposium at the Ethnographic Museum, Krakow and Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth. He was part of the group exhibition ‘Possession Show’ at the Bangkok Arts and Cultural Centre in 2013. In 2009 his public art proposal the ‘Grass Covered Hill' was short-listed for a £500,000 Arts Council project for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

Vision Statement

My research interests are in experimental, Electronic and Avant Garde music composition, as well as associated interdisciplinary visual and performing arts practices. These include musical instrument and object making, video and performance art projects.
