Nature And Organisation is the creative musical works of British musician Michael Cashmore. The music of Nature And Organisation is characterized by a mix of acoustic, classical and folk structures met with abrasive electronic instrumentation.
Cashmore has also been a member of the group Current 93 since the late 1980s. He has collaborated with many artists, including David Tibet, Douglas Pearce, Steven Stapleton, Antony Hegarty, Marc Almond and Rose McDowall. Cashmore wrote most of the music for Current 93 after the departure of Douglas Pearce in the 1990s.
During a long silence after 1998, it was unclear if Nature And Organisation still existed, as the official Nature And Organisation website was no longer online, and Cashmore released no official statements since the release of the 1998 album, Death in a Snow Leopard Winter. Since then World Serpent Distribution has dissolved and all Nature And Organisation material is out of print.
In 2006, after breaking his silence with a new official MySpace page, Michael Cashmore released a new album under his own name entitled Sleep England on Durtro Jnana Records. This was followed in 2007 with the mini-album "The Snow Abides" with vocals by Antony Hegarty, and a collaborative album in 2008, Gabriel and The Lunatic Lover with singer Marc Almond. It is unclear at the moment if there are any plans to reissue any of the deleted Nature And Organisation material.
