|Musiker - Electronica|
Harvey Summers was born into a musical family on New Year’s Eve 1974, and grew up in Bexhill-On-Sea, East Sussex. Music was part and parcel of daily life, and from the age of four he would sit by the turntable captivated as he listened to an eclectic selection of albums. This was the start of his lifelong love affair with music.
By the age of eleven, Summers was learning to play the guitar when he first discovered electronic instruments. He was fascinated by the new technology and the music it could make. Before long, Summers had saved enough to buy a cheap Yamaha keyboard which he used to record some of his own compositions. Since then, he’s been interested in electronic instruments and recording equipment.
This continued when the music department at his high school bought an Atari ST computer and a Roland Sound Module. Nobody knew how to work the new equipment so Summers taught himself and was soon making music using a simple sequencer. Later, he composed and recorded an original score for a school production of The Tempest. By then, fifteen-year-old Harvey Summers had already decided he wanted to become a composer and record producer.
Just two years later and he was honing his composition and arranging skills as he began work on his debut album “Dream Spinning.” Summers had to beg and borrow the equipment to record the album and invited friends to play other instruments. With the help of an investor the album was released in 1994 and before long, over 1,000 copies of “Dream Spinning” had been sold and Harvey Summers’ solo career was underway.
Having released his debut album, Summers was commissioned to write the score to a Doctor Who spinoff. This was the big break Summers had been dreaming of and was the first of many scores for film and television he’s written.
