Misc Loops #3 recycled s/sided CS is out not on Quagga Curious Sounds, limited to just 15 hand-numbered copies!
The third tape in the Misc Loops series, this one comprises of a 20 minute composition of meditative tape loop exploration; weaving together lo-fi ambient music, background noise and subtle bird song recordings.
Recycled black audio book cassette features a colour label mounted onto the shell. Colour artwork is printed onto white paper and packaged in either clear or grey tape shells.
Zebra Mu “Warm Up / Trash” 3″CDr is out now on Quagga Curious Sounds! Comprising of two live semi-improvised recordings captured in February of stripped back experimental noise, sourced primarily from mic’d up broken gramophone records and my voice.
A rubber stamped 3”CDr is packaged in a slim line DVD case. Each copy features cyan and black artwork printed onto peach coloured paper, an additional insert is printed in red onto yellow paper.
You can order this directly from me (only TWO copies left!):
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.

I’m currently in residence within the project space at the wonderful Dove Street Studios, which is hosted by Dyad Creative. As the poster states, a range of sonic and sculptural pieces are being created, many in response to the space, found materials and each other. The result will be a three day public exhibition and brief performance at the private view!
