Happy New Year To All,
My all is in writing music, performance and marking.I'm working on my latest piece for vinyl release.The B Side of Girl released by Entr'acte later on this year.
Studio is warm , outside is very cold , sounds are organic , bass driven and rhythmic . Thinking about Blake and Bacherlard , more so blake's strange pictures which go alongside his poems and Bachalerd's micro/ macro combining with sound and domesticity.
I must go to gym.
Looking forward to 2011,

Black and White

I was invited to an amazing event last monday organised by the Sound fjord Gallery. It was a Piano Tuning and Listening by Ken Bodden.
The event seemed to very delicately draw together discipline, expertise and musical ritual. It was beautiful and absolutely ear cleansing.
