New releases now available:
Fower / Fowk – Dinzu Artefacts (DNZ24)
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.
Monosphere – TVEI (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
With Net and Megan Steinberg.
Sound Room 76: Third Space (Tarkk’ampujankatu 18)
Kaukana Väijyy Ambient: Ravintola 931 (Kehräsaari B)
Photos and audio from my solo performance in Margate last week. Improvised score for Nam June Paik’s Zen for Film (1962-4), with cassette players, contact mics, found cassettes, empty cassettes, and coil pickups.
My guest mix for Kit Records is now available. 77 minutes of experimental music from:
Core of the Coalman
Anne La Berge
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.
