"For those who love electronica, you have a new man on your radar” - Higher Plain Music
Noel Griffin composes electronic music that merges a range of genres. His musical influences include: Autechre, Mogwai, Cocteau Twins, Aphex Twin, Kraftwerk, Vangelis, Jon Hopkins, Boards Of Canada, Nils Frahm and Four Tet.
His music is often described as "visual".
Originally from a rural part of Strabane, a border town in N.Ireland, he was first introduced to recording at an early age while helping his father produce a tape of newspaper articles, field recordings and music for the sight impaired. He also developed an escapist affection for film soundtracks, often capturing them from television onto a mono-cassette recorder and later cutting/splicing them together to form his own "soundtracks". This activity established his compositional processes.
He relocated to England in 1987 to escape the Troubles, severe unemployment and to pursue a career in graphic design. This move enabled him to further explore his musical interests and eventually make a living from teaching music. Noel produces from his loft studio in Northampton, UK.
