Biography

Graham Bowers’ approach to musical composition developed out of his life long fascination with “associative listening” (the association of sound related to life experiences) and evolved into a genre of music which he describes as “Sound Theatre”. His debut album, “Of Mary’s Blood” was released on the Red Wharf label. The first in a trilogy, “Of Mary’s Blood” combined classical, contempoary, progressive and experimental music into one long continuous track. Produced and recorded with Peter Gallagher, with musical contributions from Mark Porter, it received critical acclaim from the international music press (The Wire, Audion, EST, e/i, Mouvement-Nouveau) as did all of his subsequent releases. It was followed by “Transgression” (try Transgression ~ By thought-(i)), and the trilogy was completed with “Eternal Ghosts”, featuring musical contributions from Tim Franks, Peter Gallagher, Mark Porter, Jim Keddie, and William Henshall. The CDs of each published work were accompanied with a fold-out booklet containing a triptych of his surrealistic paintings.
After an absence due to a serious accident, he wrote and recorded several sound scores for fine art animation films, in collaboration with film-maker Clive Walley; these included an MTV ident and a series of “Short Shorts” for the British television channel S4C.

    I am currently enjoying Eternal Ghosts ~ Which is (iii) with slight undertones of Radio 4's 'MoneyBox' which is leaking from the tuner into the amp somehow. Am I tuning it out? Or is it not a musical problem ?
