Stone Records would like to recommend this new wireless music system. We've had a play with prototypes and talked to the CEO, and this is going to be a really exciting product. You will be able to combine it with a simple home automation system, but more than that, just as a stand-alone sound system it already solves the problems that exist with Sonos. Support it now on Kickstarter to be the first to own it and to get it for a great price.

Musaic Wireless HiFi Music System - Your music, Your way.

Stylish and compact Wi-Fi and Bluetooth hi-fi speakers, controlled by apps for Apple iPhone & iPad, Android phone & tablet, Mac & PC.

Peter Warlock (1894-1930) was the pseudonym of Philip Arnold Heseltine, an Anglo-Welsh composer and music critic. The Warlock name, which reflects Heseltine’s interest in occult practices, was used for all his published musical works. He is best known as a composer of songs and other vocal music; he also achieved notoriety in his lifetime through his unconventional and often scandalous lifestyle.

As a schoolboy at Eton, Heseltine came under the spell of the British composer Frederick Delius, with whom he formed a close friendship. After a failed student career in Oxford and London, Heseltine turned to musical journalism, while developing interests in folk-song and Elizabethan music. His first serious compositions date from around 1915. Following a period of drift and inactivity, a positive and lasting influence on his work arose from his meeting in 1916 with the Dutch composer Bernard van Dieren; he also gained creative impetus from a year spent in Ireland, studying Celtic culture and language. On his return to England in 1918, Heseltine began composing songs in a distinctive, original style, while building a reputation as a combative and controversial music critic. During 1920–21 he edited the music magazine The Sackbut. His most prolific period as a composer came in the 1920s, when he was based first in Wales and later at Eynsford in Kent.

Under his own name, through his critical writings Heseltine made a pioneering contribution to the scholarship of early music. In addition, he produced a full-length biography of Delius and also wrote, edited or otherwise assisted the production of several other books and pamphlets. Towards the end of his life Heseltine became depressed by a loss of his creative inspiration; he died in his London flat of coal gas poisoning in 1930, probably by his own hand.
