Biografie

Hemel Hempstead, London, Vereinigtes Königreich

Steven John Wilson (* 3. November 1967 in Hemel Hempstead) ist ein britischer Musiker. Wilson spielt diverse Instrumente und ist autodidaktisch erlernter Produzent, Toningenieur, Gitarrist und Keyboarder.

Am besten bekannt als Gründer, Sänger, Gitarrist und Songwriter der Progressive-Rock-Band Porcupine Tree, deren Alben Deadwing (2005) und Fear of a Blank Planet (2007) vom Classic Rock Magazine zum jeweiligen „Album des Jahres“ gekürt wurden, ist Wilson auch in vielen anderen Bands und Projekten involviert, die weit über die Genre-Grenzen des hinaus gehen. Unter anderem sind das Bass Communion (Ambient, Drone), Blackfield (Pop-Rock), No-Man (Art-Pop) sowie Incredible Expanding Mindfuck (Krautrock, oft abgekürzt zu I.E.M.). Außerdem pflegt er eine Solokarriere unter eigenem Namen.

Als Produzent umfassen seine Referenzen unter anderem Opeth, Orphaned Land, Fish, Anja Garbarek, Marillion und Paatos. Sein eigenes Label Headphone Dust verlegt Kleinstauflagen von Tonträgern.

Biografie
Bereits mit elf Jahren begann Wilson, eigene Musik zu komponieren. Nach und nach erweiterte er sein privates Studio „No Man’s Land“, lernte Gitarre und Keyboard und produzierte eine Reihe von Tapes. Zunächst war die Band No-Man mit Tim Bowness sein erfolgreichstes Projekt, für das er seinen ersten Plattenvertrag erhielt. Aus einer albernen Laune heraus entstand Porcupine Tree, eigentlich ein Soloprojekt Wilsons, für das er eine Biografie erfand, die von verlorengegangenen Tapes einer legendären Band erzählt. Diese „wieder aufgefundenen“ Tapes fielen Richard Allen, damals bei Delerium Records, in die Hände, und Wilson bekam einen zweiten Plattenvertrag.

    You know the ironic thing is that Wilson pretty much hated (and probably still does...) that PT was called 'The New Pink Floyd", probably because he doesn't see his music as mind blowing as DSOTM. I love Wilson's work and enjoy his albums, that includes the debated Raven (to be fair, I enjoy only Luminol, Drive Home, The Pin Drop, and the title track), but calling HCE better than DSOTM...Come on. That's a bit of a stretch.

    Obviously not Dark Side of the Moon quality, it's certainly an entertaining hour of music. I don't feel cheated and feel it was worth the wait. It will fit nicely in with some of the better albums of his discography but it doesn't top it or anything. I think a lot of people judge albums too quickly. Some that love it now may think otherwise in a few months because we're still in the honeymoon phase. It can easily grow or sour still, I haven't had enough time to digest it yet

    Don't confuse prog with being vanguardist. Are not copulative. Prog rock is a genre (more or less defined, but you are always within the limits of rock -in general-), is not the pretension to push the limits of music itself, i.e., atonalism, avante-gard, etc. (I will check both artists you mention)

    If you want to hear genuine Progressive music that is still in the realms of Prog Rock then you have to go elsewhere. Kayo Dot (or anything from Toby Driver) is a great example of a band that pushes the boundaries of music with almost every album they release.

    This was clarified in the recent All About Jazz interview when he was talking about Home Invasion and Regret #9. He talked how he wrote the song and how each idea follows the next. But in reality all he did was take well established Djet Metal, Jazz Fusion and 70s Prog and mix them together. He tried to be progressive here but he admitted he did not succeed. He thought he was being progressive but it was only later he found he had taken the ideas from other artists. However that does not take anything from the song itself or the creativity of mixing his genres together.

    The way I see it is that SW does try to be progressive, sometimes very hard when it comes to albums like Insurgentes, Voyage 34 or Storm Corrosion. But as much as I love SW I know that writing truly progressive music is not is strength. His strengths come from taking various genres (usually Prog Rock but other genres as well), mixing them together well enough to not sound like a copycat and then adding his PT/Solo style to it. I also think SW is one of the best and most consistent Prog songwriters to have ever existed, which is why he has build such a huge fan-base and gets 5/5 from all the critics. You only have to look at his discovery to show he does not compromise musically and he always does his best. But he has never been a progressive artist and he never will be.

    It's only influential for amateur homoboys like Willie.
