This is an inverse chronological selection of my work. It is by no means complete. I’ve listed all the things that are directly accessible.
Two new improvisations from my duet with Paul Forbes Mitchell
Two releases from my collaboration with Joe Musgrove
Archipelago: each island is unique, connected only by virtue of existing within the same chain.
Remnants is remastered, expanded and now available on Spotify, Google Play, iTunes etc…
Various compilations appearances.
Makrotulpa – a new modular synth focused project.
Brilliant compilation curated by HXDK
I provided the cover image and track “The Scenic Rim”

N4rgh1l3 AV works & performances
A series of electroacoustic ghosts – the remnants of sonic events are spectrally reconstructed into elaborate sound-castles.

Based on a mix I did for Halloween one year, much of which was also used at a What Is Music performance, this is my version of a “hauntology” mix. Lots of creepy soundtrack stuff.

Awake in Fields of Albion
Originally created for a tape release on a label that never materialised this album mutated into the “post-laptop” breakdown album featured here. Jammed out on real instruments in the downstairs studio/cinema of the house we were renting, then mangled with plugins this release is inexplicable and unrepeatable. It is also my favourite album ever.

Dry Mouth and a Tendency to Hallucinate (with Joe Musgrove)
This set of collage music was created live and then pared down. Take a pinch of Demdike Stare and… whoops too much Nurse With Wound now no-one will listen to it.

The Drowned City
Following a disastrous flood that wrecked large parts of Brisbane I was inspired to compile a set of what I consider to be electronic pop. Given the inspiration there are many slippages applied in the mixing. Siderial not etherial.

If the Answer Comes in Dreams then Who asks the Question?
My attempt to make populist music with populist software (Ableton Live) that is still intricate and interesting. Rigid formula and square tempos but reaching towards the creative.

Edited from a winter jam in Melbourne 2009, this is a noisy combination of 3 different improvisers with 3 different synthesisers and lots of pedals. I’m working mainly from a Waldorf Blofeld and a Kaos Pad, Clinton had a VCS3 Synthi and I believe Andrew had a Yamaha (DX7?) You wouldn’t know though – this isn’t exactly calm spacious Kosmique Musique.

Humming through Schizophonic Air (with Paul Forbes Mitchell)
Several hours from our combined digital patchwork system entitled “Habitat”, edited down to a cosy 40mins. PFM designed an AV patch in Pure Data and I designed the A/Life that controlled it in Processing. We then improvise with live instruments and “Habitat” remixes the results.
Bonus content: this is an improvisation using only battery power that we did for Earth Hour in 2008.

Binaural feedback through my homemade metallophone. Featured on a compilation with the best of the best!

Secret Killer Of Names
Inaugural release with my solo project. Using the guitar as a predominant sound-source for siderial ambience that touches on magic and memory.
File Under: Dark Ambience
Mise En Scene
My first major international release. Naive but committed digital electroacoustic compositions.
