Slow, immersive and emotive ambient music.

The sixth album in the Atmospheres & Textures series is two atmospheric soundscapes, improvised and recorded live using a specially created generative system for live ambient performances.

For much of the time, you are listening to four layers of sounds, three using the same source material, all drifting over one another to create an endlessly drifting piece of ambient music.

The music on this album was performed and recorded live. Each performance was completely improvised using synths and ebowed guitar and a series of generative loops.

My performance was part of a concert celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing.
Being passionate about astronomy and music, this was the perfect event for me and helped shape the music I played.

Weird Garden is by far my favourite gig venue to date: a small, quirky artspace with an audience of interesting, interested and lovely people. I hope I get to play there again!

Please note:These are improvised performances recorded live. You may find one or two sound quality issues but this should not affect your enjoyment of these recordings. I wanted to preserve these recordings to as close as what was performed.

Please also note: I have used this cover photograph before for my now defunct radio show. It is the best photograph I have ever taken of the Moon and shows where the area where the Apollo 11 mission first landed on the Moon. I felt it was apt to use this for the cover of this album.

Many thanks to Izzy Turnbull and to everyone at Weird Garden for such a warm welcome and a wonderful event.

I will be performing at Weird garden in Lincoln on 20 July, so expect more live music soon.

Two improvised ambient set performed and recorded live over two nights at concerts supporting Marconi Union.

It has been almost a year since I performed live in front of an audience, so when I got this invitation, I was very keen.

These concerts were the first time I have been able to produce a video to acompany my set. While each set is complately improvised, having the video behind me gave me a kind of template to play over.

Each set was due to be 40 minutes long but we had some technical issues in Sheffield which drastically shortened how long I had to play.

Many thanks to Marconi Union, Antonymes, Professor Chill, Beautiful Burnouts, the lovely and helpful staff and crews and everyone who helped at Seven Arts in Leeds and Yellow Arch Studios in Sheffield and to the wonderful quietly listening audiences who came to each concert.

Special thanks to my family and friends who came along to the shows.

I will be performing at Weird garden in Lincoln on 20 July, so expect more live music soon.

The fourth volume in the Atmospheres & Textures series is an album of very slow, drifting ambient music. These slowly developing soundscapes have brighter sounds woven into the music, inspired by the stunning scenery I have seen in recent times.

Volume five is currently due to be released in August. Before that there will be a live album. See the shows panel for more details.

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.
