Somethings Old/Somethings New

A couple of free to download, 40ish minute albums (click on the images to go to the download page) from me along with a couple of new pieces for streaming.

First up, available in its entirety for the first time is Atom Town.

Inspired by retro-futurist aesthetics of the post-atomic age, built as a requiem to forgotten dreams of old technology, the ghosts of futures passed. A piece originally commissioned for screenings of Gair Dunlop’s Atom Town film. It was performed in July 2011 at Arts Catalyst, London alongside a reading by Ken Hollings and at the DCA Dundee at the Shared Imagination Symposium in October 2011.

Then comes Unfolding inwards.

A collated series of pieces written and produced in July/August 2011, thematically constructed as a series of textural sound sculptures portrayed by a fictional broken tape machine focussing on ideas of surface noise, mechanical friction and failing media. The pieces were written and performed using a Nord G2 Modular Synthesizer and recorded/collated in Reaper with no additional processing, effects or editing.

And then a couple of newer pieces from the last week or so, an aesthetic continuation of the mental space staked out with Unfolding.

I’d say happy listening, but I think we both know it’d be in vain.
