Ed Hughes, Composer
As a composer I am interested in three things
Strong harmonies, often influenced by 16th century English music, with its soaring melodies and curious structures
Dance-like and visual rhythms
How the act of writing music down in layers can make music more complex and more vivid
I often start with simple sounding harmony but quickly enrich it by mixing my colours. I like producing music that is urban, modern and often visual, but can still trace its lyrical beginnings, sometimes in one of the earliest forms of written composition, chant. By training I am a classical composer and work with some of the finest classical musicians live, but I enjoy the recording process and see making recordings as an important and creative part of my work, and they can be found through this site.
