Darren McClure is from Northern Ireland, now living in Matsumoto, Japan. His audio work focuses on texture, space and atmosphere. Sound sources are both analogue and digital, hardware and software, incorporating found sounds and field recordings to lend an organic, tactile quality to the material. His main intent is to create music to zone out to and zone into, a balance of widescreen drones and more minimal, abstract ambience.
He has released solo and collaborative work on a number of labels, including Dragons Eye, Glistening Examples and n5MD. His music has also been used in conjunction with video artwork and documentary shorts.
