John Biddulph is a Midlands based musician, originally from Cromford in Derbyshire. (He is also a relative, if you hadn’t already guessed)
John likes to experiment using electronic and sampled acoustic sounds and instruments, to create soundscapes.
A pianola was shipped to the South Pole; the folk song it plays in the recording reflects a yearning for home perhaps. Hoosh is the strange stew-like brew that became a real comfort in difficult times and Simpson’s Corner is where all the measuring devices for weather and an array of batteries and circuits were kept. Scott spoke poetically of the ice singing and poignantly that “all the daydreams must go” as the journey neared it tragic end.
His music is also available to downnload on Spotify.
