Flux Cass Collab’ is a collaboration with Kommissar Hjuler and Mama Baer (Kommissar Hjuler Und Frau) released as a CDr on their label Der Schöne Hjuler-Memorial-Fond.
The husband and wife duo sent me a track; I reworked this live in my studio through a modified/broken cassette player, circuit bent echo pedal and delay pedal. The result is a warbled, spluttering and occasionally noisy composition!
I’m excited to announce one of my prints Inherited Home Recording (Enlarged 41%) is currently on display as part of Inheritance: Norwich Castle Open Art Show, Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery from the 3rd March – 20th May 2018.

Performed at the private view of Stretch & Burn, for more information and photos check out the main page for this project HERE
Coil Spring Works C25 is out now on the excellent and very prolific Altar of Waste Records!
“I’ve been a fan of UK sound artist Michael Ridge for a while now. Relentlessly creative, Michael runs the wonderful label Quagga Curious Sounds, which produces lovely cassettes and odd-format releases that draw from drone, hnw, harsh noise, and participates in numerous projects such as Zebra Mu and Norfolk Trotter.
Coil Spring Works is a beautiful release of yawning, gargantuan drones produced by a simple spring instrument of Michael’s own invention. Truly massive and engulfing, and at times quite lovely and restrained”. (label description)
Released in a limited edition of 10 hand-numbered copies.
