Shh Now

I met up with Gavin at the Barbican do, and he returned my Roland Sh1 monosynth that I lent him. I had forgotten how lush this synth is! Its got a lovely rounded and warm sound. Here it is being sequenced from the Roland 100M analog sequencer. I filmed it on a vintage Hitachi VK C500E video camera, nice!

Spiders From Moors

I have just had my EMS gear serviced and calibrated in preparation for my appearance at the Barbican later this month. DID I MENTION I AM PLAYING AS PART OF THE DISCREET MUSIC CONCERT ON THE 26TH SEPTEMBER? Please come along! I have been asked to play the synthesiser and tape parts live on stage, what an honour - Discreet Music is one of my favourite albums, and it was Brian Eno's first release in his seminal ambient series of albums. It was the very first ambient record! Anyway, my gear is all fit and ready thanks to Keith, but when we opened the VCS3 up there were two SPIDERS inside - they had not harmed the circuits though, just spun a few ambient webs and eaten some ambient flies

You can listen to an interview with Leo Abrahams and David Coulter about the gig below (about half way through the program)

Moor Rothko

Rothko helped quite a lot in the making of the video in the previous post. He chased the drone all over the place

Inaugural Patch

The first full patch in the new studio. Its all running together with the same clock triggering everything. In this vid: Polyfusion AS-1 Sequencer, ARP 2500, Serge Modular and EMS stuff (OK I played that by hand). Thanks to Phil Jones for capturing it on his nice camera...

Settled On A Platform

I am in a real magazine! Yes, there is an interview / feature on me and my London studio in this months Computer Music. Its also online here

Thanks so much to Danny for doing the interview - that was a very long phone call mate!!

Just a few corrections, for the record: my tape machine is 16 track not 24; the first computer sequencer I got on the Atari was C-Lab Notator, not Studio Vision (that was my 2nd sequencer, when I got a Mac); my 20 Systems album wasn't synced up using midi - on that record, if a synth had a built in sequencer I used that on the track, otherwise I played it by hand; "Kyma, it's a bit like Max, but not quite as complex" Kyma is as complex as Max, if you want it to be! Other than that its a brillo interview and hopefully I don't come across as too much of a nobber
