Ubuntu – the spirit of life, the exaggerated humanity of someone living life to the full by pursuing life for everyone, a word I was introduced to not via the Linux operating system, but by another revolutionary South African leader, Bishop Desmond Tutu, who described Mandela as the living embodiment of it. Google it, read about it, own it as his legacy. Ubuntu

New-age, post-rock, ambient-jazz, solo-bass… thus reads the strapline on his website. It’s a little tricky to pin down what he does, given that, as those hyphenated descriptions begin to tell us,
he’s a solo bassist who spends a lot of his time making very unbasslike noises.
He’s an ambient experimenter who likes pop tunes too much to go strictly soundscape, but is way too atmospheric to sit comfortably in the ‘instrumental rock’ category.
His electronica leanings produce some amazing hi-tech sounds, but he resolutely avoids programmed beats,
making the eventual hybrid of jazz, electronica, ambient, new age and ‘new acoustic’ influences infuriatingly hard to pigeonhole.
