CERENEM Journal #5

Flickers and flashes. Fizz, pop, whoosh, rrrrttthhhhh. In the corner of my mind’s eye. In the street, the train; on an old record, down a YouTube rabbit hole. Stop a while, listen. Consider the sound. Watch its movements, colours, textures. If it excites, take out the phone. Record a short excerpt. Forget until the urge to make a new thing arrives. Revisit. Stretch, mold, filter. Layer with more bottled sounds.

The latest issue of University of Huddersfield’s CeReNeM journal is out! It takes the form of a website, and I’ve written an article on how I use my synaesthesia to compose music and audio/visual work. It also features articles by postgraduate colleagues, including Pia Palme, Beavan Flanagan, Eleanor Cully, Daniel Portelli, Alex Grimes, David Pocknee, and Michael Baldwin.
