Biography:
Alastair Galbraith is a musician based in Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand. One of the most admired musicians in the New Zealand underground, Galbraith began making music in Dunedin in the 1980s, with the group, The Rip. He later went on to play with Plagal Grind, before recording as a solo artist. He has released many albums, including Hurry On Down, Morse/Gaudylight, Mirrorwork, and Cry on labels such as Siltbreeze, Emporor Jones and Xpressway.

Galbraith's sound is highly personal exquisitely intimate, and unerringly emotional. His employs violin, bagpipes, softly spoken lyrics, organ, and backwards-guitar to create what American writer Bill Meyer describes as 'otherworldly lyrical miniatures'. Galbraith also collaborates with Bruce Russell in the improvisational group, A Handful of Dust, and with Matt De Gennaro, with whom he creates distinctive 'wire music', using paino wires.
