H+ — electronic music producer from Bermuda.

Biography

H+ is from the islands of Bermuda, at tiny group of islands 700 miles off of the east coast of the United States. It is a British colony that has an economy based on its low taxes and tourism.

The idea of H+ comes from reading a lot of science fiction. He got the impression that some of the writers of science fiction where creating technologies that they would like to see in the future. Looking at current technology he thinks that science fiction writers have had an impact on the present day so their writing inevitably will influence the future. Could music have the same impact? The obvious solution would be expressing the ideas with the lyrics, and while H+ believes in using words to express ideas he wanted the music to be the thing that excites the imagination.

While H+ has degrees in orchestral and art music performance he is not a European, nor is heover a hundred years old so he does not write in that style, even when he writes orchestra music. H+ has been influenced by Metal, Funk, hip hop, and electronic dance music as well as art music. The type of music that incorporates aspects of all the music that H+ has been inspired by is Intelligent Dance Music ,IDM, or Braindance. He especially likes the Glitch sub genre influenced by his favorite IDM composers Aphex Twin and Squarepusher. Influence from Metal, Funk, reggae, dub, jazz, art music and other genres that H+ has been influenced by are explored and then mangled, distorted and edited to achieve the desired aesthetic.
