New album launch.

Good evening to you, I hope you’re having a good start to the weekend, even if it isn’t the extended one we’re enjoying here in the UK for the queen’s platinum jubilee.

That isn’t the only thing worth celebrating today, however, because he time has finally come for me to air a new collection of original music, in the form of my new album, Process of Elimination.

Listen for free or purchase one or more of the album’s 15 lovingly crafted tracks via the Bandcamp player below.

As if that wasn’t enough, I’ve already created videos for a few of the new tunes and here are three of my favourites.

Cosmic Photo Extravaganza: Broomhill Sculpture Gardens.

On Sunday morning I took a drive just out of Barnstaple, to Broomhill Art Hotel and Sculpture Gardens, which I have visited many times and I’ve taken a great many photos there, too.

The National Sculpture Prize is hosted here and a lot of the previous winners are on permanent display in their own part of the beautifully landscaped, lightly wooded river valley. But there is hardly anywhere on the sprawling, gently sloping site below the hotel and galleries, which isn’t a vantage point from which to view the huge number of artworks on display.

It is always a pleasure to wander through this surreal landscape of the imagination, seeing it grow and evolve each time I visit and I thought this time I’d really try to do it justice with a bumper photo tour. I even added an artistic experiment of my own, another peculiar panoramic selfie. ;~}

I hope you enjoy your look around a really magical place, maybe you can visit it yourselves one day…

New Year, new mix.

Hello there, happy new year to you all, here’s a new musical treat for you, to start 2022 off on a funky note. It’s a little disco number I call Daft Kerplunk, in tribute to a certain defunct French electro duo by whom it is inspired.

Mind your eyeballs, it’s about to get…complicated.

Grid Muzik/Planet X: Double Bandcamp release.

My Bandcamp profile continues to grow and you can explore it in full by clicking on the image of my back-catalogue, but you can also get a taster right now in this post.

If you caught yesterday’s audio visual spectacular, you’ll have already heard one my two latest compositions, Grid Muzik, but if not you can listen to it here

However, I only completed work on the second of the weekend’s peculiar electronica projects this afternoon, so this will be it’s first public airing.

I’d like to present to you, an up-tempo little number called Planet X, check it out, it’s never quite what you expect it to be…

Psychedelic Sunday.

Another weekend of digital fiddling and multimedia mucking about has ended up with another new piece of genre-defying electronic music and an accompanying video which gives new meaning to the word “trippy”.

The video was made using only a single photo, which I was using to make some artwork for the track’s Bandcamp release. I got a bit carried away adding more and more extra layers of effects and, although the resulting visuals weren’t created by synching them with the music, they are still pretty awesome in their psychedelic trippiness.

Wednesday Weirdness: New Bandcamp releases.

Today I have some new and original musical compositions to share with you, in the form of an album and a remix EP. First up are these lively and occasionally noisy tunes; featuring genre-mangling experiments with rock riffs, electro-tinged melodies and techno rhythms, each one available individually or complied into the Xamidimura album (which also includes a bonus remix of an earlier, ’80s-inspired track)… And that is followed by a three track remix project called Interkonnekt, which began when I couldn’t find quite the right sound for the final layer of a mix I was making. Eventually, I used one of the components from a completely different mix and the unexpected success of the arbitrary juxtaposition got me thinking; what if I mixed and matched the two main components of several mixes, what would that sound like..? Well, no need for you to wonder, because it sounds like this. These fabulous new releases can be listened to for free via the embedded Bandcamp players in this post. You can play the track displayed and if you click on the title you can view the track list, which can be purchased individually or in whatever combination tickles your auditory fancy.

New music: Pre-release video exclusive.

Time for another burst of extended sonic experimentation, once again accompanied by an eye-wateringly psychedelic video.

The entire visual extravaganza was made using nothing more than a one minute twelve second clip of the spider you see at the start, which I then spent a few hours layering with more and more effects until I arrived at the retina-worrying result below.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the world premiere of Temporal Drift

Free download: Brand new remix, exclusive to Bandcamp.

This weekend’s musical project was conceived when I heard Tom Tom Club‘s Genius of Love on the radio during the week. That’s most often the time I think “Ooh, that sounds like it has potential for some mucking about” and file it away for future experimentation.

Well yesterday the experiment began.

I started by establishing the BPM and key of the song, (102.9 and B Major, if you’re interested) then I proceeded to assemble an eclectic range of samples from online archives, which I carefully sequenced, after re-tuning them to match the pitch and speed of the original track.

And as usual when I embark on these sonic adventures, I got a bit carried away and ended up making an entirely new and somewhat extended piece of music; one that stands up perfectly well on its own and with which I have to say I was pretty impressed.

But, since I’d made it, I thought it was still worth splicing together with Tom Tom Club’s bouncy, post-punk pop song and the freely playable and downloadable result appears below in all its extravagant glory.

Enjoy.

Wednesday Weirdness: New EP release.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been working on a new EP of original material and I am giving you, my lovely readers, the first chance to experience it in all its glorious, trance-like complexity.

As usual, each track comes with its own bespoke artwork, along with the main cover art and each track is also available to purchase individually.

But you can listen to the entire EP via the embedded player below, should you wish to try before you buy.

Lastly, I’d like to once again express my gratitude to those of you who have already supported my adventures in musical experimentation, it’s always good to know someone appreciates the work I put in to these projects.

So, now it’s time to sit back, turn up the volume and join our future robotic overlords for a bit of a boogie.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the A.I. EP, I hope you enjoy it…
