Steve Claydon is and artist and musician. He studied at Chelsea School of Art in the late 1980s and then Central Saint Martins in the late 1990s. He was a founding member of the band Add N to (X), with Anne Shenton and Barry Smith who worked together in what they saw as part of the lineage of electronic innovation forged since the 1950s by the likes of Edgar Varese, Kraftwerk, Bruce Hack, Walter Carlos, Grandmaster Flash, Leon Theremin and Emerson, Lake and Palmer. They coined the term ‘avant-hard’ to describe their electronic output.
