Gideon Juckes on SoundBetter

Your project is missing one very important thing. TUBA! Featured on over 70 album releases, theatre, television, commercial, game and film soundtracks, and at home in all genres, I can provide some unique character to your project, whatever the genre. I have a professional home studio setup, and can provide great sounding recordings.

Born in England in 1974, I began playing the tuba at age 13. I was soon playing in youth Symphony Orchestras, Wind Orchestras and Big Bands, and at 14 I began attending the Royal Academy of Music in London as a Junior Exhibitioner, where I studied with Paul Lawrence (London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra). Around this time, I was listening to a lot of classical music and heavy rock. At the age of 15, I attended a lecture recital and workshop given by the great American jazz tuba-player Howard Johnson. I can pinpoint that as a moment when my mind was opened to an infinite world of possibilities for my chosen instrument, and I began experimenting with sound, improvisation and playing in unconventional settings.

In 1992, I attended Goldsmith's College, University of London, where I studied with David Powell (London Sinfonietta, Loose Tubes). After graduation, I began a freelance performing career, and I've been lucky enough to be the tuba-player of choice for a huge range of artists and musical styles. In 2007, after 15 years as a professional musician based in London, I moved to Tokyo, where my musical life has gone from strength to strength. In addition to my session and live support work, I also run my own projects FU-CHING-GIDO and Music For Isolation.
