The House of Andersen

Andersen is the stage name of Australian musician, Scott Sanders: a composer, performer and producer of contemporary music across many styles and genres, from contemporary art music to dirty guitar rock, from sweet finger-picking acoustic to multi-layered electronica and synth-pop. A guitarist, synth player and vocalist, andersen largely produces his own work, with an occasional collaboration along the way.

In addition to music, andersen also takes time out for abstract photography, looking for the hidden beauty in the natural and synthetic world that is easy to glance past without noticing.
