Born 1978 in London, Charlie is a British composer and music producer. His training as a classical guitarist collided with the world of electronic production in the 1990s and early 2000s and ever since the resulting work demonstrates a love of exploring these different fields with an improvisational and collaborative ethos at heart. His current work is interested in concepts of landscape, external and internal. This emotive and atmospheric blend of rootsy acoustica, orchestral instrumentation and minimal electronica has also proven popular with award winning film makers worldwide. He now lives in bonnie, coastal Scotland, his home since 1997. Extended bio here.
