Jim has been writing Electronic Music since the late 1980's when he stepped back from fronting a black metal band to explore a solo career in instrumental music. He has his own unique style of Gothic EM which moves easily between huge symphonic slabs of music, dark ambience and sequencer driven soundscapes. The music itself, inspired by Gothic and Symphonic Rock and Berlin School Electronica, is quite often a CD in length, moves and shifts in tempo and mood, sometimes dark and sombre, sometimes ethereal and melodic, yet the whole gels perfectly into a single experience that grips the imagination and brings you into a world of dark and exciting beauty. It is a world that explores the fringe side of life. Strange esoteric cults and religion, conspiracy theories, ancient mythology and civilisations, sci-fi and fantasy, (Jim is a fan of Babylon 5, JRR Tolkien, Moorcock, Gaimen), are all inspiration for his instrumental music.
