He has also recorded an album with guitarist Tom Wilson, entitled The Shack Recordings Volume One.[4]

Among other credits, he coproduced Simply Saucer's demo tape with Daniel, and is one of the founders on ambient music along with Brian Eno and his brother. He was also given a credit in the "Thanks to" section of U2's The Joshua Tree album credits.
