It was not me

I was working on some rhythms for a different track and they were just not working so put them on hold. Later, they immediately sprung into my mind as soon as I started to work on this idea.

I guess that all of my old anxieties and insecurities are being exorcised by these, rather manic, series of works.

Fleeting Glimpses

I have just finished the bulk of the photography for a new, multimedia, SoundArt project that I have been planning for some time.

The project as a whole is based on my impressions of the Deeping Lakes near Spalding, and will incorporate still photographs, Paintings, Sound recordings and Video. It will underpin my philosophy of being an observer who is just passing through, part of the fluidity and fleeting nature of the Universe.

This work will be a major undertaking that will be the culmination of many smaller, single media, projects that I am currently engaged upon and, as yet, can not hazard a guess as to the estimated completion date.

While attending a RadioArts workshop in Margate's Turner Contemporary Gallery, I managed to record a few sounds of the Sea and with some other recordings that I have collected over the years, a morse oscillator and key, put together a piece to accompany some words that wrote a few months ago.

Some projects happen quickly but this one has been simmering on the back boiler for some time.

Future Man

Much as I try and keep my sounds minimalistic, they often end up multi-layered and over complicated. I hope I stuck to my original brief with this piece and kept it simple.

It's a piece inspired by Alan Butler's book, "Intervention".

Soundscapes of Margate

Just returned from a great weekend in Margate where I attended a Radio Arts Workshop at the Turner Contemporary Gallery. The event was run by Artists Magz Hall and Jim Backhouse from

It was a full day of sound recording and post production resulting in Soundscapes of Margate that will be used around the Town and also in several exhibitions in Kent.

On completion, our works were also performed in the Dan Graham Cubes at the Turner Contemporary Gallery which is part of the Tate Modern Gallery. This generated a lot of interest for the visiting public. 

It is not everyday that you can say that you have exhibited and also, been an exhibit, at the Turner Contemporary Gallery.

If you have never heard a Soundscape before please feel free to listen on Soundcloud using the link below.
