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

‘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.’

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.

Together We Can – Brunel University Sonic Garden @ Chelsea Flower Show

The music department at Brunel University London are involved with a cool project, that I’m lucky enough to be helping out on. Colin Riley and Carl Faia are leading us in a collaborating with the Papworth Trust called Together We Can – a sonic garden that’s being presented at the Chelsea Flower Show next month, with Dame Evelyn Glennie joining us for a one-off performance at the show. 
We’re using hydrophones, contact microphones, 10-channel sound, and Max/MSP to create a long-form installation. This weekend we’re off to Lincolnshire to test our work on a prototype of the garden. I’ll be filming it all, and sharing some video next week.

The team is:
•Colin Riley
•Carl Faia
•Phil Maguire
•Ardeshir Mostajeran
•Eleanor Brooks
•Dan Christović
•Graeme Shaw
•Matt Collins
•Reuben Abbott
