No Emis is a genre-fluid musical project that started over 30 years ago, combining a classical music background with the synth sounds from pop, industrial and synthwave.
I try to create music videos to accompany my tracks and you can find these on my YouTube Channel.
I write and release my original music and it is available on all the major streaming services. All releases are shown below and include relevant links so you can listen to them on your preferred platform.
In addition, all my music is available to download via my Bandcamp page.

Written predominantly during the summer of 2020 ‘Asymmetry’ is a collection of original tracks inspired by my Chemistry studies at university. The final track on the album actually dates back to 1991 and was included in the original recording of the ‘Songs from the Border’ EP. Here are the release notes.
Beyond the light
Recorded during the winter 2020/21 ‘Beyond the light’ is a sonic world of synthwave, classical notes and cinematic experience.
I wrote a little bit about each track in this post.
The Fall & Rise of Reginald Fox
A summer 2021 EP creating an electro-classical fantasy piece voiced using the SWAM ‘Cello instrument.
The Digital Delusion
Much more industrial sounding than ‘Beyond the light’, ‘The Digital Delusion’ is inspired by the distortion and manipulation of reality through digital media.
I wrote about the inspiration to the album and a bit about each of the tracks in this post.
During the pandemic and through beyond the periods of lockdown, life was very unsettled. It is very much why The Digital Delusion came out the way it did, being darker and more broody than previous albums. Whether it was this, or just life getting back to normal (whatever that means) but creativity slowed to a crawl.
I started work on what I thought would be a follow-up album to Digital, but for whatever reason, the creative juices weren’t flowing as they might. In the end, the project became a 4-track EP called ‘”Hope”, something a lot lighter and brighter than what came before it. The project was written during the summer of 2022 and released that November.
The Shrewsbury Affair
Just prior to the pandemic, a group of friends went to visit Shrewsbury Prison, now a museum. One of the group was writing a short film about the last hours of a (fictional) convicted murderer and we thrashed out some filming ideas, not realising that the pandemic would kibosh the world only a month later.
Rolling on to October 2022 we were back on set filming the project. I was approached to put together some music for the film and I set to work with some ideas which ultimately formed a project in its own right. The subject matter is, by its very nature dark, but musically draws influence from scores by John Carpenter plus my background in synthwave and classical music.
Releases 7th April 2023.
