Aaron Parker (b 1991) makes music in a variety of acoustic and electronic media. His work draws upon continuing interest in the behavioural characteristics of environmental sound and the interaction between the natural and the man made. In this regard, he counts the work of John Cage, Chris Watson, Gerhard Richter, Giuseppe Ielasi, Richard Long, Zimoun, Anselm Kiefer, Richard Chartier, Norman Ackroyd, and Brian Eno among his principal influences. 2015 sees the release of Aaron’s record Storage
on Berlin/London based imprint Slip, and he continues work on new pieces for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and Manchester-based guitarist David Bainbridge. Groups he has written for in the past include the ddmmyy series, Psappha, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Cassia Quartet, Stenhammar Quartet and Manchester Camerata. Besides composing, he works as a music and music technology teacher and occasionally performs solo laptop/electronics sets.
