Tapes sold out at source. Download available now on my Bandcamp, and a very limited number of tapes available soon.

Studies exploring the limits of tape machines. Recordings of low frequencies and noise repeatedly overdubbed to create thick, grainy textures. Found voice samples appear as ghostly commentators.

MonosphereTVEI (tvei28)
All tapes sold out. Second run available soon. Download available on TVEI Bandcamp, as well as my page.

Monosphere comprises two iterations of monophonic, autonomous computer music. Performed with a custom Max patch, the pieces explore inhuman and unpredictable dynamics, gradually rendered with extreme quietness. Drones, sine wave clusters, gentle noise.

Review – Irregular Crates

‘Empty Damage’ Review in We Need No Swords

“Disjointed scrapes and rustles push through a layer of fibre-glass noise, the lack of audibility adding to a growing sense of unease…You might be able to relax if you could figure out what was going on, but, as it is, those consoling details are just out of earshot. KcKcKcKrrrrrrcKcK. Bbbbmmmph. Chchinggg.”

‘brak’ review in Tiny Mix Tapes

Employing subtle sine tone oscillations and field recordings as sonic source material, the two short pieces simply titled “1” and “2” gently explore timbre and presence … This is an excellent, restrained effort, both in terms of content and length, and a thoroughly remedying listen.

‘brak’ – Tape on Soft Error available for pre-order

New tape out Nov 27 on Soft Error. Limited edition C16 and infinite download.

brak is a pair of timbral studies.
Sine tone oscillators, clicks, and cassette
field recordings stop and start;
drifting blocks of sound.

Recorded in London and Dungeness.

brak – Scots for break, as in broken waves ‘rolling towards the sea shore.’

smll hnd / dctfl hnd – cassettes!

I kill a hound. I kill a small hound. I kill a deceitful hound. I kill a worm, wherein there is terror; I kill all his wicked brood. Seven angels from Paradise will help me, that I may do valiantly, and give no more time to the worm to live than while I recite this prayer.

In 2014 I released my first album on a small cassette label. I’ve recently received the remaining tapes, and these are now available on my Bandcamp page. 
The album is a collection of drone works in two parts:
•Side A: Sterile, forensic studies of computers, objects, and software synthesisers
•Side B: Drifting, textural soundscapes, processed field recordings
