David Lowe (video game composer)
David Lowe also known as "Uncle Art" is a British composer known for his work on computer games from 1985 to 1995.
His Starglider soundtrack for 16-bit computers (ST & Amiga) was also notable of having 15 seconds long song (a single sound file) with vocals and synthesizers on both versions. Amiga version's title music used high quality instrument sounds (for then prevailing standards - before tracker music).
David has two daughters: The eldest - Elizabeth Lowe - is currently (2010) in a stage play with Dirk Benedict, and the younger is Holly Jazz Kotzé (née Lowe), singer and songwriter in the band Like a Thief. He has a son: Adam. His wife Victoria Lowe was formerly a reserve member of Pan's People, and studied under Arlene Phillips.
