As integral to the creation and development of BELLOSOUND as partner Daniel Buckman, Peter was there right from the moment of genesis. Taking the reins as lead of business development and client relations, he leaned ever so gracefully upon more than 20 years of experience in audio and digital services. With a rich background in information technology, he brought immeasurable insights to BELLOSOUND that included expert consultation on digital music delivery and playback systems. A pioneer for his – or any – generation, Peter was just as comfortable talking music as he was conducting the business of it. With a knowledge and fire that ran deep, he loved it all. Jazz. Nu-Jazz. Soul. Blues. And so on. You could find him in a darkened theatre enjoying Giles Peterson spinning rare Brazilian groove one night, and basking in the sunshine during a day-party with Anjunadeep the next. The genre didn’t matter, as long as it made a strong connection within him. A connection identical to the one Peter made with all those fortunate enough to have met him during his lifetime.
Favourite BELLOSOUND moment to date?
When not delighting clients with wit and warmth, Peter truly enjoyed the BELLOSOUND summer parties at Snake Island. He remains with us (in spirit and ethics) to this day, in everything we do and in every song we play.
