Richard James was co-founder of seminal band Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, and has since produced three solo albums with another release planned this year.
Along with writer John Williams, he leads on In Chapters - an arts-collective that stages multi-media events in Cardiff and festivals, and is Curator of Music for the celebrated Laugharne Weekend Festival.
James has written for television, live performance art projects, composed an original soundtrack for a commission based on the work of Dylan Thomas (with artist Anthony Shapland) and co-wrote and performed the music written for two Yuri Norstein animations. He recently put together two 90 minute programmes for London based art radio station Resonance FM, containing a mixture of composed works, collaborations, field recordings and sonic art.

He is a multi-instrumentalist who works creatively and intuitively with avant garde music, sound art and visual art through multiple disciplines, from composing electronic and electroacoustic works for underwater performances as part of the 'WetSounds' European tour 2009/10 to recording and touring with popular bands, ensembles and collectives. R. Seiliog has recently released an EP & album with support from Peski Records, Turnstile Records and EPA Publishing.
