SINA aka Barry Gordon is a musician and producer from Belfast, Northern Ireland. Fascinated by music from an early age he was intrigued and inspired by his fathers extensive and eclectic vinyl collection which contained many diverse genres of music, from Latin and African rhythmic music to folk, gospel and jazz. As a teenager he taught himself to play several instruments, learned musical theory and played in various local bands before being introduced to sampling techniques and computer sequenced music.
He debuted his first original compositions under the name Sina. in 2009, and after releasing several well received netlabel EPs, is set to release his first proper EP through Project: Mooncircle on November 5th 2011.
His work is detailed, densely textured, melodic and most importantly emotive –
“The emotional aspect of my music always takes precedence over all other aspects. I have no problem drastically changing or dismissing altogether any elements which don’t serve or compliment the originally intended feeling of the piece. The heart is the essence.“
