Helm is Luke Younger - a sound artist and experimental musician based in London, working with a vast array of revolving instrumentation and abstract sound sources. Younger's compositions build a dense aural landscape which touches on aspects of musique concrete, uncomfortable sound poetry, industrial, and hallucinatory drones.

To this date, he has produced three full length albums; debut To An End, self released on his own ALTER imprint in 2010, was a complex network of intricate layers and mixed sounds, described by John Elliott (Emeralds / Spectrum Spools) as "a haunting composition of field recordings, tape loops, percussion, and electronics (among other things), creating an extremely tense and daunting audio tapestry which leaves the listener pondering the intense meaning of the sounds chosen".
