John Woolrich

(1954 - )


'His music whispers, whirrs, rustles, creaks, and shines with a gentle light, often elegiacal. It is not music of long line, full-throated song, bright hard clarity, physical exuberance. Its characteristic movement is shy, blinking in the sun, attuned better to half lights.’
Robin Holloway
