Nick Redfern was born on Christmas Day 1962 in the English town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire. He studied music at Huddersfield University (then Polytechnic), King's College London, the Royal College of Music and Birmingham Conservatoire. He has been a professional composer since 1983 and has worked in education as a teacher and lecturer for 29 years.
Cloud Factory Publications Limited was launched in June 2014 and has two publication streams. The first is Music through the Microscope, a series of musical analyses of major works from the European Classical Music canon. The second stream is Modus Operandi, which has titles in preparation but none as yet available commercially. The rationale behind Modus Operandi is to address musical and educational subjects through theoretical, artistic, methodological and aesthetic principles.
Nick lives in Leicestershire with his wife and enjoys the peace and tranquillity of living in a small, rural community. He is the Director of Foxton School of Music Limited.
