Exciting times ahead and evening of live sound performance in Milton Keynes Gallery 16th of Feb . Am writing it at the moment . Its going to be through three rooms and called Fissure. I'm working alongside a visual exhibition by Daria Martin called Sensorium Tests .

Working hard at the moment for Milton Keynes Gallery on the 16th. My sound Check is on the 24th of Jan and I am finishing all the material for the gig .
Above is a picture I took on the heath , on of my fav places.

The material is bass driven , quite rhythmic and dynamic , I love it , so I hope they will to. I wrote about Fissures of Glitch in my phd quite a few years ago now . A Fissure is a geological break in a rock . It seemed to be quite a good way of describing how I build glitch in my work , some times to join things together , sometimes to break things apart .
Anyway , to bed , up late , to late , writing music ,

Was a good week last week very productive and creative . Jacques Beloil is mastering the new tracks for my CD with entra'cte and they were sent off at the end of the week.

This week I am to start rehearsing for Milton Keynes in the studio's in Stoke Newington .I think it is much better going there as I can do the detail volume and bass in a session.

speak soon , and hope you like the photo .... from near Canning town , DLR ..

Everytime I read this , I feel it's fresh energy, so after reading it today I was totally inspired to post it up, go all you music , go and create bold beautiful and brave,

Away! Let us break out since we cannot much longer restrain our desire to create finally a new musical reality, with a generous distribution of resonant slaps in the face, discarding violins, pianos, double-basses and plainitive organs. Let us break out!

It’s no good objecting that noises are exclusively loud and disagreeable to the ear.

It seems pointless to enumerate all the graceful and delicate noises that afford pleasant sensations.
