As an artist, Sand's sound and vision is that of musical hide and seek, things seen peripherally, memory, not being here, light, spaces & shadows, vision quests on public transport, trances in shopping queues, time as a playground, hugging monsters, riding the outskirts of one's age. Ingredients are acoustic guitars, piano, bass, electric guitar, organ, drums, percussion, mandolins, recorders, sitars, xylophones, vibes, violin, voices and miscellaneous found, treated and accidental sounds.
Sand also paints (pictures, as opposed to walls, which he tends to climb).
His music can be found on Bandcamp among other pages.
Vocal contributions from Moonswift, Nyx, Steven Wilson, Jason Ninnis, Jo Lepine and Jerome
"Obsessive Creatures" (2005/2006) on Time Lag. "I'm Not Here" (2006/2007) & The Twilight Game (2007) on Reverb Worship and Two Way Mirror/The Magpie House (2009) on Tonefloat. The Tonefloat label also issued vinyl editions of "I'm Not Here" & The Twilight Game in 2008. A new album is due to be released in early 2010.
The album details on this site are outdated and, to be honest, I can't figure out how to change them (ridiculously convoluted). Anyway, "Obsessive Creatures" is no longer available, but "I'm Not Here", The Twilight Game and Two Way Mirror are available from the Tonefloat label http://www.crazy-diamond.nl/tonefloat/html/tf69.htm
