Patrick Farmer is an artist working with composition. He was born in 
Beckenham, Kent in 1983, and has moved allover the country since then. 
His mother bought him his first drum kit when he was twelve and eight 
years later he spent six months in India studying Hindustani Tabla with 
Pandit Nayan Ghosh. Still most often referred to as a percussionist, 
though he hasn't performed on a drum kit for nearly four years, Farmer 
will commonly enlist the help of a drum or turntable to act as a 
resonator for natural materials or filtering field recordings.Lately he 
has been using the motors of a reel to reel player in preparation for 
his tour with Stephen Cornford.

He is a founding member of the Set Ensemble, a group based in the UK 
dedicated to the performance of experimentalmusic, especially that of 
the Wandelweiser group, and co-founded the online record label, Compost 
and Height, and Wolf Notes journal, with Sarah Hughes in 2008. As of 
October 2012 patrick began studying towards his Ph.D at Oxford Brookes.
