It's been a while! We've moved to a new location which means I have a new space. I like this one much better than the previous. Acoustically it is likely not as reliable but it's certainly more comfortable and inspiring. I have been busy with moving, setting up and teaching sound design, acoustics and academic… Continue reading New spaces
On hearing that Trumpy Mc Trump-face shot his load (of rockets) at a barren Syrian airfield I couldn't help but feel that the world deserved another hour of comforting experimental music... so here it is... pay what you feel. Using up all my CloudBounce credits I plopped this algorithmic monster out. I figured I'd rather rely… Continue reading One Last Gasp is out just in time for W.W.III (v5.15beta)

This could be believed if you managed to sleep through 2015 and plan to cryogenically freeze yourself for the next four years at least.

As always the balance of… Continue reading Fun with Python, current build and distribution.

This is an EP of four ambient experimental tracks originating in multichannel improvisation recordings post-manipulated into structures. Each track is a figure with an associated image as shown on the back cover. To explain the glib attribution a burst water… Continue reading Syntagmatic Relationships
Origin Story Most of my releases coalesce into a conceptual framework within development. While each track remains an island, in a less direct way than Archipelago, the sonic and thematic blueprints start with an audio-visual picture drawn from this article from the New York Times. In particular the quote from Safi al-Safi: ‘Red mercury has a red color, and there… Continue reading Black Mercury unpacked
Cleaning out my hard-drive the other day I found a lost Makrotulpa album. I polished it up a bit and present it to you here. Listening back i'm not entirely surprised I forgot about it. Not that it's bad so much as it being profoundly negative. Perhaps it's my Pornography? The title originally came from… Continue reading tHE eneMY wIThin
