British noise artist. Owner of HNM Records. Married and likes coffee. Harsh Noise Movement had been producing numerous bad quality cassettes featuring experimental loops and noises as early as 1984 for his own personal enjoyment. As the years passed by, and with the creation of the internet and sites such as YouTube, Harsh Noise Movement started to upload videos of his experimental sounds and realised that no one really cared about them. Then one day, he decided to stop being lazy and created a Bandcamp account. He couldn't think of a name for a label to put his sounds on, so he took the easy way out and used the initials of his noise project, hence HNM Records. He then made a few online accounts on social media sites and started communicating and working with lots of like minded noise artists. The name Harsh Noise Movement came from his wife, as a sarcastic joke which he remembered from when he first met her in 2011. He had told her about noise, the artists involved and how harsh the sound was at times. She jokingly teased “Oh so your part of the harsh noise movement then!”.
Founding member of Awkward Geisha free improvisation ensemble.
