Julian Brooks is a composer, coder, sound artist and performer. Initially playing bass in bands and working as a teenage session musician, through exposure to electronic dance music and rave culture he spent a decade in Manchester within the ‘underground’ music community: as recording artist, sound engineer, remixer, producer, programmer and label manager for a successful independent recording label. A growing interest and desire for involvement in contemporary music led to academia, where he organised MMU’s Experimental Music and New Music Ensembles as a Sonic Arts undergraduate. He recently completed a composition PhD at Huddersfield where he was sole digital performer in edges ensemble and a founder member of the laptop ensemble HELOpg; writing text score works becoming widely performed. A proponent of Free Libre Open Source Software praxis, with all his material freely available online, he recently founded the Pure Data Patching Circle in Hebden Bridge.
