I am currently making music as ‘carter takes a train’
My passion was reignited after chancing upon a Performance by ‘Plankestra’ as part of the Yarmonics festival. Plankestra is an element of the Norwich and Norfolk Sonic Arts collective Eastern Ear. Encouraged by their existence I started to attend their Improvisation sessions. Gradually my confidence grew
I had pretty much not made anything for about 30 years but had always maintained a keen interest in a diversity of Musics.
I was delighted to encounter a burgeoning Electronic scene in Norwich which at that time was centred around the Space Bar a club in Norwich featuring DJ’s and a wide range of left field Electronica including Modular Synthesis (the Dark side)
My background was as a Vocalist, and I had only dabbled with Synthesisers as part of the Band. Always more of a Producer and writer than player it’s been a fairly steep curve but very rewarding.
