Welcome to the UnObtainium Home Page

From early beginnings playing rhythm guitar in various unknown rock bands, I developed an interest in synthesisers in the late '60s and early '70s.

Having built my first synthesiser from modules and kits, I aspired to better things. I bought, swapped and sold a few early synths, and eventually managed to begin my current collection of mainly analogue machines in the early '80s.

Time has never been on my side, so over that long period, my output has been comparatively little. Because I don't have a passable singing voice, my compositions have tended to be instrumental only, sometimes written for their own sake, sometimes written as scores for video, (another interest of mine). Many compositions are inspired by space and cosmic themes.

This site contains some of my more presentable compositions from the last 25 or so years, in .mp3 format. You may freely download them if you like them. Please click on the links below to listen, or right-click and select "Save Target As" to download.
