LEFT WINTER is a composer of electronic, cinematic sounds. With work composed of field recordings, analogue and virtual orchestral components and sound design, LEFT WINTER is inspired by the stories of people and places, both real and imagined, producing journeys of sound that take listeners with them. Drawn to the romance and fiction of people and places, recordings sourced from the US tell stories of invented characters, including a serial killer set amongst a backdrop of panel vans, parking lots, cheap motels and flickering neon, while German influences take presence in the form of bells, crossing signals, open spaces and the deep sounds of stationary, heavy trains. With sweeping melodies, thick drones, orchestral parts and unexpected glitches, his music tells the stories behind autobiographical, factual and fictional concepts, with titles including ‘We Formed Ourselves Into Tight Groups’, and ‘They’ll Take A Ride Out’; listeners are left forming their own mental, visual, scenes.  LEFT WINTER’s practice also combines visual work; monochrome photography, print, physical and moving image pieces; minimalist and sparse, these function alongside and support his compositions. His performances explore captured sounds evolving live in a public / exhibition space, with  visual works being naturally drawn to electronic sounds and their links with communication and science
