Born in Blackpool in 1927 but lived much of his life in Hull, Basil Kirchin was a maverick musician and a pioneering composer who is credited as a founding father of ambient music.
Kirchin’s intriguing history represents a collision of popular and experimental musical cultures that predate and define much of the music we hear today.
Ahead of Mind on the Run: The Basil Kirchin Story (February 17-19 at Hull City Hall), KCOM Culture spoke to many of the participating musicians and Kirchin’s friends to gain an insight into the amazing musical mind of a forgotten genius of post-war British music.
