Bryan Whellams has been going by Flying White Dots for just a few years now. Though he's been DJing since about 1994, he started producing mashups about a decade later, and there have been four albums since 2006.

Radio One, XFM and of course Some Assembly Required have all paid attention to FWD. You can download all of his records, including a couple of EPs, at his website's download page. Check out the main site HERE, and take a look at his myspace page HERE.

Without further ado, here's the SAR Q&A with Flying White Dots...

*Name: Flying White Dots

*Are there any additional names used to describe this project: No

*Do you use a pseudonym? Yes

*Members: 1

*Founding Members:
Bryan Whellams

*Tape manipulations, digital deconstructions or turntable creations:
Digital deconstructions cos I do it all on a computer.

*Another genre descriptor: Psychedelic textured mashups.

*Is there a story behind your name? A Google search on "staring at the sky" brought up an article saying "staring at the sky for a long time what are those flying white dots you see".

*Location: Brighton, England

*Original Location:
Middlesex, England

*What is your creative/artistic background: Musician and DJ

*History: 3 years

*Born: Middlesex, England, 1974

*Motivations: I have no idea, because I don't make any money out of it, it doesn't get me any work, doesn't get me laid and I'd rather be doing something else most of the time. Then again, I normally like the end product and it's quite nice getting a track played on the radio.

*Philosophy: To make something that sounds nice, is a bit different and flows nicely as an album.

*How would you like to be remembered:
The mysterious one who made a few decent albums.
