Biography

The Caretaker is a long-running project by electronic musician James Kirby alongside his better-known project V/Vm. Initially the project was inspired by the haunted ballroom scene in the Stanley Kubrick film The Shining, with the first several releases consisting of dark ambient with intermittent orchestral segues and flourishes.

The Caretaker releases the majority of his work on the V/Vm Test Records label.

Recently, The Caretaker has shifted attention onto the processes of the brain's function in recalling memories. This has been typified by the monumental release 'Theoretically pure anterograde amnesia' which was released in 2005 as a series of 72 free MP3 downloads. In 2006 this was pressed up as a limited edition 6 CD boxset with an additional 12 tracks. Those who suffer from 'theoretically pure anterograde amnesia' will still be able to recall memories laid down before the onset of anterograde amnesia, but will exist in a transient world where anything beyond their immediate attention-span disappears permanently from their consciousness. The release itself found much critical acclaim - it was record of the week in Stylus Magazine, received a favourable review in Grooves Magazine and was given an honorary mention at the ARS Technica awards for Digital Musics in Austria, 2007
