The music of musician, composer, and writer Jude Gwynaire draws on his many interests and influences to create new and diverse instrumental soundscapes that span the genres of electronica, ambient, new age, folk, and rock.
Taking inspiration from history, folklore, and the natural world, Jude has also written science-fiction and fantasy stories for children and adults.
Slate Bird Studios
As a self-taught musician working from his own studio, Jude pursues his passion for music free from constraint, indulging in an atmosphere of unbridled creativity.
The studio equipment list is constantly updating through investment and experimentation – however, Jude is always drawn back to his favourite Korg synths and Fender guitars.
“Composing and recording has been an essential part of my life since I was 15. I like to be as versatile as possible… acoustic, rock, dance, ambient, and more… as I explore the cinematic, transcendent, side of music... exploring, creating moods and diverse soundscapes.”
