Greg Haines is an English musician and composer currently living in Berlin, who specialises in exploring the middle-ground between the academic world of contemporary classical music and the freedom found in genres often referred to as experimental or electro-acoustic. Arvo Pärt’s intricate use of both space and density informed Greg’s critically-acclaimed first solo release, ‘Slumber Tides’, on the Norwegian Miasmah label in 2006. In the wake of his debut, Greg toured Europe extensively, befriending many other musicians along the way. Many of these friendships resulted in collaborations, including work with Machinefabriek and The Dakota Suite, as well as live performances with Sam Amidon, Jasper TX and Ben Frost. As well working with choreographers like Meg Stuart and Ina Christel Johannessen, and having music used by various institutions such as the BBC, Greg has also been quietly working on a second solo album entitled ‘Until the Point of Hushed Support’, due for release in 2009.
