Haitch has been producing music and DJ'ing in various forms since the
early 1980's in his hometown of Birmingham, England. He now resides in
the Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada. He is the host and resident
DJ of the CiTR radio show Plutonian Nights. Much has changed in his
composition and production style since the early days of 4bit sampler/tape
loop experimentation, but much hasnt. Although his recordings and performances
feature a wider variety of textures and sounds, and a larger body of equipment,
they are still wonderfully primitive in many ways, preoccupied with the question
of how the worlds inside and outside of the boxes can come
The line between DJ and performer is blurry. Utilizing anything from
a stock turntable approach to many addition sound sources and techniques. He is
particularly fond of completely improvised performances, incorporating
large amounts of original material and layers.
Plutonian Nights is broadcast every other Tuesday via FM, cable, realaudio and shoutcast.
The show is hosted/performed by Haitch, with guest DJ's and performers frequently. There's
a link to the show's website in the top frame. The Plutonia Collective also broadcast at
varying other times, providing many different methods of tuning in. Plutonia is also
a base for many other creative projects and gatherings, encompassing more than audio
work, it is an open collective.
