Whether working as a composer or producer, Dr Slater's work is fuelled by an exploration of spontaneity and collaboration - regardless of style. The focus of his music-making is on celebrating the abilities and idiosyncrasies of the musicians he works with.

As a writer, he interrogates the patterns and processes of music-making from theoretical and philosophical perspectives to understand something about what's going on when people make music.
