I have a previous musical incarnation called Soundician, which had it’s first release in 2000 and 16 albums in total over 18 years. Tracks were written and recorded by me and mixed by my husband, Kit.

“… a mix of classical electronic music with a touch of ambient, minimalist and experimental elements. Since the first release in 2000, albums have always been eclectic and no two releases are the same but there is a definite Soundician sound….”
