New releases now available:
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 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.
verz returns to Hundred Years Gallery on March 2nd. Ryoko Akama and I will perform While Listening, by Thomas Martin Nutt (featured on VI007, dear martin). Guests Sonic Luz (Klaus Filip/noid) will perform with DIY optical synthesisers.
The following evening we’re in Huddersfield at Coffee Evolution. Sonic Luz perform again, and I’ll play a solo synthesiser set.
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 is available on Soft Error. Edition of 50 C16 cassettes, and infinite downloads.
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.’
My new tape, defekt fabrik., is available now. Cassette player and malfunctioning tape loop studies on pro-duplicated C27 yellow cassettes, with unique handmade artwork for each tape. Edition of 20.
