Ian Helliwell

A self-taught multi-media artist, Ian Helliwell works in music, film, animation, instrument building, collage, installations, live performance, writing and film programming.

He has made over 100 films – one of the largest bodies of shorts in the world to feature electronic music soundtracks by one artist.

His Hellitrons and Hellisizers – which he uses to compose and record his music – are a unique series of self-built sound generators.

His film Practical Electronica, and book Tape Leaders, represent a step forward in the research of UK electronic music history.
