Producer Stephen Wilkinson is a self-taught musician from an area in central England often referred to as the Black Country. His love for sound and noise led him to the University of London and the study of Sonic Arts where he discovered experimental electronic acts such as Aphex Twin, Autechre, and most importantly Boards Of Canada. His own musical identity was christened Bibio, in honor of a fly his father had insisted on using during the fishing trips to Wales that were so influential in establishing his love of the sounds of nature. Where his Mush ouvre focused on location recording using cassettes, a half-broken sampler, dictaphones, and experimental ways of affecting sounds, his recent release on Warp stands apart in its more electronic, beat-savvy production. In both arenas Bibio has crafted a unequalled style that is as subtle as it is powerful.
