UNIQUE & EMOTIVE MUSIC
A FEW WORDS
Joe Hill is a composer, performing musician and sound artist based in Bristol, UK. He prides himself on crafting emotive and interesting music which conjur unique connotations within the mind of the listener. Joe loves music because of how powerful it is as a universal language. Using music, he can speak deeply to people from differing contexts.
WHAT I DO
Joe composes for visual media, theatre, installation and live performance. Recent works include an orchestral romantic waltz for a surreal short film, ambient and morphing drone soundscapes for a theatre production and a prepared piano piece for an installation exploring ocean pollution.
Joe’s natural performing and improvising abilities have found him playing in numerous bands and ensembles on electric bass, piano and synthesisers all across the UK. Credits include Mercy’s Cartel, Piin, Shifty Lao, Regime, New Palace Talkies, Luma and many more. He is adept with using digital technology live, being able to explore musical sounds far beyond the remit of acoustic instruments.
Recently Joe has begun to branch out into creating interactive music-based art. His craft produces interesting juxtapositions and he uses his talent to explore and pay homage to the natural world, with the greater aim of educating the audience about the climate and environmental crisis.
