The eighteenth volume in the ever-expanding Twilight Sessions series, available on double CD and download.

The music on this album was improvised and recorded live during March 2016 at my home studio, MCos, in Manchester.

Like previous albums, each piece starts as a blank canvas. I press record, play a few notes into a long, slowly decaying loop and see where the music takes me.

The canvas of sounds I used evolved throughout the recording, with lots of new sounds added along the way.

In January 2016, I made a second visit to Sweden as a guest of the electronic music collective Dogma Noveau for their annual get-together.

A weekend was spent creating music in beautiful and inspiring surroundings on the frozen Baltic coast.

The music on this album was recorded on and around that trip at MCos, Manchester and Arkösund and Stockholm in Sweden, using a minimal set-up: laptop, midi keyboard and the wonderful Roland SH-32 synth - fantastic but small enough to fit in my hand luggage! I also did some field recordings which are used in various ways in this music.

A massive thank you to everyone who made me so welcome in Arkösund.

Largely recorded in the heat of the southern California sun, The Village is an album of chilled out ambient music from prolific Manchester ambienteer Bing Satellites.

Over two and a half hours of quiet music inspired by the beauty of southern California and all its charms, the Pacific Ocean and New Mexico.

This whole album was recorded on a very minimal set up, due to the mobile nature of the recording sessions - a laptop, a pair of headphones and a small MIDI keyboard. The limitations of the set up and the circumstances and the beauty of the surroundings were very inspiring. There are improvised Twilight Sessions style loops plus layered loops of sounds using a technique similar to Eno's Music For Airports (but made much simpler with today's technological advances).

There will be more music recorded in California (and beyond) in the future.

For Alex.

The seventeenth volume in the ever-expanding Twilight Sessions series.

The music on this album was improvised and recorded live during September 2015 at my home studio, MCos, in Manchester.

Like previous albums, each piece starts as a blank canvas. I press record, play a few notes into a long, slowly decaying loop and see where the music takes me.

The canvas of sounds I used evolved throughout the recording, with lots of new sounds added along the way.

Found

Coming of age horror moving featuring my music
The complete soundtrack is now available to download - free for a limited time!

Found

Marty is the ideal fifth grader. He gets good grades, listens to his teachers, and doesn’t start trouble in class. But darkness is beginning to fall over Marty’s life. The kids at school won’t stop picking on him, his parents just don’t seem to understand him, and now Marty must grapple with a terrible secret that threatens to destroy life as he knows it – his big brother is a serial killer! Brotherly love is put to the ultimate test in this emotional coming-of-age story that descends into full-blown horror.

I am very proud to be part of this truly original film.
There aren't many films which combine the depth of story and character which the darkest horror elements.

The movie also features music from Aaron Marshall as well as a score by Magician Johnson & Greg Wright.

Found has played at film festivals around the world, rightfully winning many, many awards (see foundmovie.net)
I was lucky enough to go to Brussels to represent the film at the 31st Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (pictures and more bifff.org for the European premiere where it recieved an enthusiastic reception.
