As a Musician, his Work spreads from longform Live-Recordings of Drone Music over luscious Labyrinths of mangled Live-Loops to an unconventional, ragged Approach of playing the Guitar, with hints of impromptu Freakouts and soothing, lullabic Noodlings.

His timbral Explorations root in the Fields and Principles of Aleatoricism, Improvisation and Minimal Music.

Based on various live-looped and modulated Soundsources, he developes a pulsating, static Reeling and winching Whirrings with a lean to Freefrom Freakouts and the joyful, synaesthetic Sides of well-tempered Noise.

Folky Guitar-Pickings stumble upon Elements of glitchy Leftfield-Electronica, alternating with Passages of stirring Drones and buzzing Tones.

Combining the endearing Melancholia and DIY-Aesthetics of Lofi-Homerecording with the psychedelic Qualities of early Cosmic Music and the psycho-acoustic Gravities of spectral Processings and glistening Buzz, Huey Walker is always in search for the ideal, endless Hum.
