Projector Mix Profile

Peter McLennan
19 Sep 2014

Mike Hodgson’s solo outfit Projector Mix began around 1990 when he started working on his own “electronic dub-beat-stuff, a shift from the Tinnitus project.” Projector Mix marked a departure from the heavy experimental bent of Hodgson’s previous group into more reggae-based, beat-driven styles.

He had been working with Tinnitus, formed by himself and Angus McNaughton in Christchurch, since the early 1980s, creating ambient experimental soundscapes. They shifted to Auckland in 1988, releasing 13 cassettes and eventually winding down around 1993.
