Jim Hughes has been working in various facets of the music industry for over 15 years. He is a member of the Board of Advisers for Global Cultural Diversity Films, music-supervisor and A&R for WAP Publishing (http://wappublishing.com) and network administrator at Independent Media Pros.com (http://independentmediapros.com). As a music-supervisor, Jim has placed music with brands such as Chevrolet, CocaCola, Pepsi, Doritos, LEGO, Mountain Dew, Nokia, American Red Cross, Snuggle, Tropicana, Vaseline, Walmart, Bud Light, Yoplait, AT&T, Best Buy, Chex Mix, Dove, EHarmony, Haagen Dazs, Nature Valley, Renaissance, Visa, Kodak, Vodafone, Philips, Campbell's, McDonalds and many more! As a composer he has scored for films and documentaries as well as having several successful releases as an IDM/Progressive electronic artist.
As an artist and composer, one of his unique characteristics is his ability to create very unique sets of instrumentation that can rarely be confined to one genre. While very hard to classify, his music could be compared to respected innovators such as Apparat, Ulrich Schnauss, Burial, Telefon Tel Aviv and Tycho. At the same time avant-garde and addictively catchy, soothing and dissonant, the Scientific Method merges both musical genre and brain hemisphere.
Immersed in music culture since the early age of four and classically trained as a multi-instrumentalist with intensive focuses on drums, clarinet, guitar, bass and vocals, his sound exhibits an interestingly organic quality. His music fuses the classic orchestral vibe with glitch, IDM, and progressive elements that seem to appeal to not only the electronic crowd, but also manages to entice many other types of music fans as well.
The Scientific Method’s first album “Digital Nonsensical” was an attestation of this broad musical training on one hand, and love of all things that make a racket on the other. Continuing the strange evolution of Jim Hughes’ work is the upcoming EP “Fighting Sleep”, his concept album based on the “party until the sun rises, and then party some more” ethos of modern electronic and indie music fans, which is due to be released on March 31, 2012.
