James Asher

    Growing up in a musical family gave me a strong appreciation of music from my earliest times. My father taught music and languages, and I grew up believing it was a natural and intuitive means of expression. From the age of seven I learnt violin, and played in my father's small school orchestra. Then at age 12 it was drums and piano drawing my attention. This in turn led on to a fascination with recording, and many hours of enthusiastic experimenting.

    Growing up in a musical family gave me a strong appreciation of music from my earliest times. My father taught music and languages, and I grew up believing it was a natural and intuitive means of expression. From the age of seven I learnt violin, and played in my father's small school orchestra. Then at age 12 it was drums and piano drawing my attention. This in turn led on to a fascination with recording, and many hours of enthusiastic experimenting.

    It was exciting to get work as a sound engineer in recording studios, initially just as assistant, and this led to a fascination with recording which has never left me. Learning the technicalities of the recording process captured my imagination, and has proved useful ever since. Though I found much of the work undertaken in commercial studios somewhat unadventurous, it increased my drive to find ways of exploring some of the amazing possibilities for myself. This became possible when I embarked on writing music for music libraries, (soundtrack music). Amongst the twenty or so albums of music I wrote in this area were albums like the Studio G album Abstracts, which later was sampled by the Chemical Brothers and U.N.K.L.E., and is now available as a digital download from iTunes etc. I would enjoy combining acoustic and electronic elements and used instruments like autoharp, violin, mandolin, piano as well as synthesizer.
