It makes him unique but also, given the connections his work has, part of a global musical culture rather than a specifically local one. Recently he has posted some internet-only material on his website which are little short of cut-up cosmic trips of treated vocals, synth beats and guitars, and astral-jazz attitude. Think avant-jazz from an alternative nightclub on Saturn. They are exceptional, challenging and beguiling.
There are few musicians anywhere who have such mastery of acoustic guitar, electronica, beats and Buddhism, not to mention the interplanetary flights of his internet work now posted.
