I really need to come on G+ more often - I had no idea you'd left a comment!  Thanks - glad you like it :-)

I'm a runner up in the IDMf ChangeTheNoise competition!  A new 6 track EP has been released today, with all tracks made from the same set of samples.  Please download, enjoy and share!

Just uploaded a drone piece, inspired by listening to the Eraserhead soundtrack last night.  I decided I wanted to start my next live set by creating an  uncomfortable atmosphere before breaking into the music proper.  Here's the result - all created from a single sample of a record crackling.  Very bassy, definitely needs decent speakers for the bottom end:

Couple of Vines from me - snippets of as yet unreleased new tracks I've written for my live show. #ableton #electronica #idm #breaks

An experiment in drones, inspired by the Eraserhead soundtrack, that I plan to use as the intro for a live set I'm working on.  Made from a single crackle of a vinyl record, processed with Metasynth and then again using Valhalla reverb plugins and Sonic Charge's Permut8.

Lots of sub bass in this - listen on good speakers if you can...

Hi everyone - just wanted to mention a night in Newcastle upon Tyne on Friday 14th, where a few of us will be performing with prototypes of instruments we've built over the last few weeks using .NET Gadgeteer Cerberus boards and modules.  Not sure what the others are going to be like, but mine's sounding a bit like '90s rave as imagined by a madman in the year 3000.  Should be fun, if a bit chaotic.

The night's at Morden Tower on Stowell Street.  I hope I'll be able to record and upload at least my own, if not all, of the performances...

Sounds like fun. And thanks for introducing me to yet another dev platform, on top of the Arduino, Propstick, Mercury, Nexys2, MSP430 Launchpad, and two Raspberry Pis I already have. :)

I'm thinking I should build something interesting with all those first, before buying more.

It is, however, really nice to see these inexpensive and highly useful platforms taking off in a big way. Pretty soon, instead of specifying individual parts for new products, we'll be specifying a platform plus whatever extra parts are needed.

Tagline
Apple technician and electronic music producer (Morpion). Avid baker of cakes and tea drinker.
Introduction
I work as Apple technician in Gateshead College.  I own too many t-shirts.  I usually need a haircut.  I probably spend too much time on geeky hobbies - making electronica, designing sounds, building control surfaces for software synths with TouchOSC and stuff like that. But I love it. Usually.
