Smallhaus is David Little, a South-East London based composer, guitarist and electronic music producer.


Smallhaus is an evolving experimental music project, started by David in 2015 after a number of years away from making music. Starting as a way to explore sound and music making outside of a traditional band format, initial experiments concentrated on manipulating found sounds and field recordings, alongside guitar and electronics. The sound developed to incorporate life-long influences from psychedelia, shoegaze and post-rock, along with electronica and ambient music. 
Musical reference points include Neu, Amp, Flying Saucer Attack, Windy and Carl, Eno’s 70 Ambient series, Grouper and Tortoise.

The first Smallhaus album, Unweather, combined early experiments to create an evolving two-part sound collage – self-released on cassette and download in early 2017. The EP Six followed soon after, featuring six tracks with all sounds being made on electric guitar and then processed. The second “proper” album, Lutra, was released by Linear Obsessional records in summer 2018. Tracks from lutra have been played on Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone on BBC 6 Music, Resonance FM and NTS.

Smallhaus releases are available on Bandcamp, Spotify and a number of other streaming services.
