TRANSMISSIONS VI

Very proud to announce that I've been asked to curate next years installment of Transmissions Festival in Ravenna, Italy. Continuing on from Stephen O'Malley's fine work this year I'll be looking at Transcendence as the overarching motif and hope to aid all in attendance to disappear as effectively as possible. Om supreme!

W.A.M.A





I wrote a piece of music that was sung by 70 or so primary school children in Bristol. It's something I had been wanting to do for a while. Working with my friend Serena Korda seems to make dreams come true. Here's a documentary about what we did. GALAGU!

DOS vs Stay+

I sing on the new single by Stay+. Total euphoric summer banger. Lyrics in reference to the daughter Wren.

DOS vs Duke Ellington

I've always enjoyed those youtube clips where a person has filmed themselves playing a version of one of their favourite songs. It's a strange and modern transmission. At their best these transmissions feel solitary and absent minded. One evening I found myself playing guitar alongside 'Portrait Of Mahalia Jackson' from Duke Ellington's New Orleans Suite. What a gift to give oneself. I didn't perform so well, but first thought, best thought. Youtube has a filter where you can give your videos a "1960's" look, so in the spirit of a hipstamatic world I pressed the apply button. God bless Duke Ellington and his intricate thought forms. I'm sure Mahalia Jackson was moved.

Laid To Rest Vinyl Landing

Laid To Rest vinyl now available from Neuropa. This is music I wrote for a commission with my friend and collaborator Serena Korda. The record features amazing performances by Steve Noble (Æthenor), Alex Ward, Chlöe Herington (Chrome Hoof), The Medieval Baebes, Stephen O'Malley (Æthenor / Sunn O))) and Kristoffer Rygg (Ulver). This is mythical marching band music. Probably the closest thing to Miasma & The Carousel of Headless Horses that I've written for a while.
