For the British clothing company, see The Focus Group (business).

The Focus Group is a project of experimental electronic musician and graphic designer Julian House. His releases are on his own label, Ghost Box Music. The Focus Group's sound is a blend of influences ranging from old library music sounds, sixties-inspired pastiches, and soundtracks to 1970s films and programmes, as well as the sound collage of musique concrète.

Influences

House has acknowledged the debt that The Focus Group's sound owes to library music produced in the 1970s, to soundtrack documentaries, public information films, and soundtracks.
