Ed Hamilton currently lives in London. Having extensively studied computer sound generation, he became increasingly disenchanted with his austere experiments and felt the desire to reconnect with the acoustic instruments that first fuelled his love of music. He currently uses his collection of Max/MSP patches, coupled with a variety of acoustic sound sources, to create multi-layered compositions that blend melody and traditional instrumentation with shimmering electronic pulses and drones.
