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

‘aural documents #1’ – Reviewed in ATTN:Magazine

Everything about aural documents #1 is clean and exact; a precise negotiation of noise, time, space and silence, architecturally arranged into a structure of symmetry, right angles and impeccable counterbalance. The hand of the composer is barely present, intervening at the behest of necessity rather than preference, instigating switches in polarity rather than nudges of increment. Vivid and irrefutable.

baconjam X Electric Spring

I’m super excited to be on a bill with Embla Quickbeam, Lee Patterson and Marlo Eggplant at BaconJam Collective’s Electric Spring late night show in Huddersfield. The show is on 24th Feb at 9pm, in the University of Huddersfield Creative Arts Building Atrium, and entry is free! Northerners, get to it.

I’ll be performing my new piece, structuur.
