Ian Hawgood is a resident of Tokyo and London. Using collected locale recordings and a variety of instruments, the work under his civil name concentrates on organic tones and micro-elements. Through static, decay and bursts of melody, the music slowly evolves and devolves along its linear path to a point of meditation upon place, location and ‘home’.

Currently working as a high-school teacher and sound designer, he also curates the Home Normal, Tokyo Droning and Nomadic Kids Republic labels.
