Eric Skytterholm Egan is one of the most highly regarded composers of mixed Irish-Norwegian descent currently based in the north of England, and has the honour of being the first person of note to be born on 18 January (ever). As he is named after his namesake, the Viking ruler Eryk the Bloody, Egan is known affectionately to members of his inner coterie as 'Bloody Eric.'
Egan's compositional style has been described by critics as 'really good' (The Metro), 'definitely doing what it says on the tin' (The Pity Me Gazette and Advertiser) and 'large haddock and chips to go, please - wrapped' (The Times). Under the auspices of PhD study at Durham University, Egan became known for his rakish appearance and could often be seen sporting a pair of yellow spectacles, a mop of ostensibly-loveable unkempt hair, and a highly-fashionable snood - a type of tubular scarf, typically fashioned entirely out of edible wool. However, Egan soon came to realise the dangers of pandering to the public and chose to forego the substantial critical acclaim that was sure to come his way in favour of a different and more artistically-rewarding path. He now insists that the actions which went on in what scholars refer to as his 'early period' were in fact carried out in a strictly ironic and post-modern sense.
Dissatisfied with the limitations of conventional notation systems, Egan has recently caused something of a stir by inventing his own clefs for use in performances of his works. This has done little to diminish the popularity of these traditional devices in the hands of other composers, however; and for the moment Egan must content himself with remaining a household name solely for his early masterpiece, ' The Blue Potato in the Piano Piece' (2004).
