Aphex Twin Tickets
Aphex Twin TicketsOne of the most highly acclaimed and widely recognized figures in electronic music, Aphex Twin is the pseudonym of British musician Richard David James. Born in 1971, James enjoyed tinkering with musical instruments and equipment as a child, such as by playing with piano strings and taking apart tape recorders and tapes. This developed into an affinity for modifying synthesizers to create new and different sounds. James even says his attraction to music only came after his attraction to sound engineering. He started making music in the 1990s producing his own acid techno albums; he also DJ'd at various local raves and clubs.
An Aphex Twin of Many NamesAphex Twin's debut album, Selected Ambient Works 85-92, brought him wider acclaim, and in subsequent years, his singles "Come to Daddy" and "Windowlicker" brought him a still wider and more geographically diverse audience. As Aphex Twin, James released six studio albums, three compilation albums, 11 live albums and 12 music videos. While he's most widely known as Aphex Twin, Richard James has also gone by AFX, the Tuss, Blue Calx, Polygon Window, Caustic Window, Power-Pill, The Dice Man, Bradley Strider, Q-Chastic, Caustic Window, GAK and Mike & Rich. More, as Aphex Twin continued to find success, James continued to occasionally record and perform under several of these other aliases. As eclectic in his personal life as he is in his music and performances, Aphex Twin claims to own a 1950s tank equipped with a functional machine gun and once lived in a converted vault inside a bank he purchased.
