Ranjit Fernandez is originally from the east-coast town of Montrose in Scotland and has recently returned to the area after working in Qatar since 2000. In 2003, with the encouragement of Anthony Curtis (formerly of BOOM,, he started composing and recording his music using a home-studio unit. Initially the songs were developed under the Unkle Fezter's Ear Project title and a triple CD album was produced. Hand-made CDs were sold in Qatar and abroad. The idea behind the music was to develop and present 3 genres of music simultaneously, each working on different moods and emotions. Songs in the 'Pierced' section are rock/metal orientated whilst 'Lobe' is the acoustic-driven collection presented as the 'soft' easy-listening alternative. 'Prostheses', as the name may suggest, is the experimental ambient/dance section working with loops and samples. Songs inspired by Qatar featured on his first retail release entitled Pearls. Excellent reviews resulted in a distribution deal in Qatar. Pearls is an album of 8 instrumental tracks inspired by the artist's experiences of living in Qatar. Being instrumental, there are no language or cultural barriers. This was the first release of a CD by an expatriate resident in Qatar and received the attention and praise of the Qatari Royal Family. Following this, 3 further albums were released the next year. The albums include the triple CD Unkle Fezter's Ear Project; the ambient CD Corpus and the stress-relief CD called Relak-sashen. In 2008, Ranjit released his 'eco' album, Plastic People. This album once again features tracks from a variety of genres. He is in the process of recording new tracks for the next 2 albums which will possibly include vocals. A New track 'Excellence' featured recently in a TV advert in Qatar - Resolution Productions commissioned a one-minute piece of music to accompany a promotional video for the Education Council of Qatar. This advert has been aired on local TV and Al Jazeera TV. The music has featured on QBS and online radio and articles have appeared in Qatar Happening magazine, the Gulf Times newspaper, several Scottish newspapers and Ranjit has also featured in Guitar Player magazine in the US.
