The Variable n-tet is my generic band. n is conceived as a positive integer which can vary from 1 to many.
For the majority of its existence it has existed in its Large n-semble form playing my compositions for big band.
Chief influences are The Mothers of Invention II and III, the Canterbury scene, retro US garage bands, modern jazz and brass band music.
I firmly believe that humour belongs in music because in that way, we are never more serious.
