James Brewster is an English musician, producer and sound-explorer currently living in Malmö, Sweden. His interests include field recordings, ultra-melodic song-structures, dense digital processing, cryptically evocative lyrics, improvisation, evolving counterpointed melodies, noise, intricate rhythm patterns, spoken-word, no-input, sound design, and spontaneous collaboration.

'As a hovering insect mass breaks your fall' is his fourth album, and the first to be released under his given name. It came out in March 2011 on the UK label Make Mine Music. The record features vocals from James himself as well as - among others - Nick Talbot of Gravenhurst and Albanian opera singer Egzona Gervalla.
