One of the most prolific composers of electronic music in the 1990s and the New Millennium. He works primarily in the field of what is known as space music, part of the electronic and new age realms. Like much new age music, Carty's aims to inspire as well as to relax and heal. Carty says he hopes it will bring as much peace of heart to the listener as it does to himself while creating it. Carty's is a music you can always turn to to relax and restore your spirits. For those of you who are familiar with some space music, but don't know Carty's, comparisons might be useful. It lies somewhere amidst the darker and more spare or ethnic sounds of Roach, the smooth misty music of Serrie, the deep sensuous spiritual sonority of Parsons, and the bright esoteric spirituality of Michael Hammer.
