Biography

A perpetually inquisitive child, Michael Anthony Wright was never fully satisfied by ‘just’ listening. A desire to ‘get around the back of music’ led the young Wright to start modifying electronic equipment, rejigging everything from turntables to tape recorders before moving on to making ‘tape collages’ of everything from De La Soul to his own voice. His teenage years saw the advent of rave and with it an opportunity to escape the humdrum banality of his Kentish hometown for something altogether exciting. Whilst some of Wright’s friends eventually took the party life style of the time to the dangerous extremes, he ultimately found solace in playing bass, leading to the formation of a three piece covers band with a group of school mates. Relishing the adulation that came with his newfound ability to ‘rock out’, Wright came to the realisation that his future lay in music and began a course at a local music college where he learnt his way round a whole range of musical equipment.

Applying to Sound Design at LCC on the recommendation of his uncle, Wright gained a place and had his mind opened to a whole world of hitherto unexplored sonic possibilities. Able to fully realise the sonic experiments that he’d conducted as a precocious 10 year old all those years ago, Wright began improvising with the London Sinfonietta at the Royal Festival Hall with his own custom-made software, performing at improv shows and even heard his pieces get played on Radio 3.
