Garamond is the musical moniker of Graphic Designer Gareth Paul Jones.
‘It was a nickname given to me when I was looking for a DJ name during my University days. It was essentially born from the vague connection between the legendary typeface, my name and that I was focussing on the practice of typography within my studies. It was a great connection and it stuck.’
Shards of Light' is the 4th EP in the ongoing series and out now.
The EP follows on from 'Alma Hermosa', 'Shifting Sands' and 'Petrichor' with the music in some way influenced by nature, movement, and travel. Often the titles or ideas come to me during a trip somewhere or from a photograph I take (which then often forms the artwork itself, as with this latest EP).
‘Art, music and design have and always be central to my creative output and I hope even just a trickle of this comes out in the music you’re listening to.’
Some all-time musical influences in absolutely no particular order:
Aphex Twin, Vangelis, Gustav Holst, Top Buzz, Massive Attack, LTJ Bukem, Rave tapes (too many to mention), Geoff Love & His Orchestra (the first tape cassette I ever had), Joy Division, 808 State.
