My name is Andy Walker.
I do a few things.
I taught myself to drum at the relatively late age of 21 or thereabouts, after having realized that a lifetime of tapping on desks, doors, beds, mugs and other people was clearly an omen. Nowadays I'm making up for lost time.
I currently co-lead the Harbingers Drum Crew, a bloc of varying size (up to 25 occasionally!) playing pavement-smashing beats inspired by metal, taiko, samba and drum'n'bass.
I played for about seven years with the Edinburgh Samba School.
Current projects: developing a solo act using drum triggers, loop pedal, djembe and singing; improving my live kit drumming; learning to sing better; continuing to dabble in the random instruments I've picked up over the years (latest: trombone!)
I currently work for Sequentec, writing industrial control software, data analysis and web-based data dashboards for tidal and wave power platforms.
I spent eight years at Amazon, including three years building a web app to allow prospective movie makers to create animated storyboards with music and sound effects, all in the browser.
Not necessarily chronologically - these just don't represent my current work. Some of them aren't very good. Take them as a documentary timeline ;)
New stuff always goes up on my SoundCloud page before it arrives here.
