Richard D. James is one of the most inventive musicians to have come out of Britain. Born in Limerick, Ireland, and raised in Truro, Cornwall, UK, to parents of Welsh decent, his music is always changing, always inventive, and liberally laced with his own brand of eccentric humor. Under a variety of stage names, (AFX, Caustic Window, Polygon Window, and Aphex Twin, to name the most known), he has transcended through the various permutations of pop-oriented electronic music, fused together elements of each, and given us an insight into inner worlds vast and beautiful. In 1997, he caused a controversy with his video "Come To Daddy," directed by Chris Cunningham, which featured his distorted visage grafted onto the faces of mad children running through a dilapidated housing project. This is the moment that people in the mainstream began to be aware of this musical phenomenon. He has gone on to become one of the only pop-oriented musicians to collaborate regularly with people from the Western classical world, such as Philip Glass and Gavin Bryars.
