The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It was a very fortuitous theme I picked for The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, since the only place the temperature was bearable over the weekend was; In the trees.

I took Audrey down to Rock Park to meet her friends yesterday morning, taking the opportunity to capture some greenery at the same time as enjoying the much-needed shade. (The somewhat vertiginous effect of a few shots is due to the use of a wide angle lens)

Now let’s see what arboreal delights you found for us to marvel at…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Just about made it for a Friday prompt on The Cosmic Photo Challenge and it looks like it’s going to be a nice weekend, so for this week’s theme I’ll see you; In the trees.

Let’s all (safely) get out in the sunshine and capture the best nature has to offer in the leaf and branch department, then meet back here on Monday to compare photographic notes, ok?

Midweek musical multimedia masterpiece.

After dabbling in drum and bass for the first time the other day and being pretty impressed with the results, I spent a good chunk of the weekend creating an extended and quite complex mix of a tune I’d begun earlier last week.

The original track was a lot shorter, but by the time I’d composed a completely new one to combine it with, the final edit clocked in at just over 18 minutes, making it more of a 12″ megamix.

Anyway, I hope you like the outcome of my latest musical adventure, which you can listen to via the embedded Bandcamp player. You can also watch the slightly shortened HD video HERE on my Instagram page, or at the lower resolution* YouTube link below.

*YouTube is rather irritatingly refusing to upload high quality video at the moment, so apologies for that.

**edit: You should now be able to view the above video in glorious 720p definition, since YouTube seem to have got their collective shit together.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For your mission on The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, I asked you to provide images based on the theme of; Reflections.

The reason I chose this prompt was because I had the dubious pleasure of putting together a large and complicated self-assembly wardrobe in Audrey’s fairly small bedroom last week, which features two equally large mirrored sliding doors.

Anyway, having spent all that time and effort (and swearing) building the thing, I thought I may as well take advantage of the new wall of mirrors to capture some interesting pictures.

Using Audrey’s various small make-up mirrors and her fancy mood lighting, I managed to create some agreeably head-scratching optical puzzles with my one phone and no editing,

Did the weekend catch you in reflective mood, show us your results, don’t be shy…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Full disclosure – I have an ulterior motive for setting the prompt on The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, which nevertheless is simple enough; Reflections.

I know we’ve had a variation on this theme more than once before, but I’m confident there’s still plenty of scope for your creative energies to flow freely and provide us with some stunning photos for Monday’s post.

Have a great weekend and I’ll see you back here to curate and compare your photographic offerings.

New album launch.

I’m delighted to inform you today marks the continuation of my musical publishing adventure, with the release of my second full length collection of original material, Sonic Cosmos.

The seven track album was composed, produced and mixed from scratch, using my Remixlive and edjing apps and includes custom-made artwork for each tune (which may also be purchased individually) in addition to the main cover shown above.

This time around there’s a varied selection; ranging from throbbing techno and retro synthwave, to chilled electronica and jangling guitars, all of which you can listen to via the embedded player below, where you may also buy any of the tunes which take your fancy.

Thank you to anyone who has already supported my creative endeavours by purchasing my eclectic (and very reasonably priced) audio output, I hope you all enjoy my latest offering.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Good morn-ternoo-vening to you, wherever you may be and welcome to The Cosmic Photo Challenge for this Monday, themed around the prompt; From an unusual angle.

My initial photos were of creepy crawlies in the garden and some nice raindrops on roses (one of Julie Andrews’ favourite things, apparently) until the distorting effect of the glass in kitchen door caught my eye.

I took several shots of myself from various angles without, and I would like to stress this, without pulling any silly faces at all. The results are, nonetheless, troubling…

What interesting perspective did you bring to the challenge this week? Let us see your personal spin on the prompt, it couldn’t be easier…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

For your inspiration on The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, I’m returning to a prompt which led to some interesting results on previous occasions; From an unusual angle.

Which means the world is your proverbial bivalve mollusc, providing said mollusc is viewed from a surprising perspective of course.

Enjoy your weekend and good luck with finding new ways to look at life, see you on Monday.

Midweek musical madness.

Time for more sonic experimentation to brighten up your hump day.

Firstly, here’s a brand new slab of deep, dark techno, called Fathom

…followed by this free download of a truly preposterous concoction; two previously separate compositions spliced together to make up a veritable cornucopia of weird noises and conspicuous bleepery, Datastream.
