Blind at The Age of Four
Debut album Blind at The Age of Four is the first full-scale entry into the anachronistic world of Jack Warne's GAUNT – a world of music, technological experimentation and visual art that has been building since his days at the Royal College of Art, where he first began to combine his talents as a designer and visual artist. The album is built from ever-shifting loops of experimental electronics and accompanied by surreal, uncanny visuals. The album's title comes from Warne’s experience suffering from a rare eye condition – Thiel-Behnke Corneal Dystrophy. A hereditary dystrophy he's suffered since he was a child. This condition led to a young GAUNT spending weeks at a time in bed, in complete darkness.
