2020 Sonics

2020 was a mad year wasn't it? Everyones plans were ruined by a random virus, so we all had to improvise our lives a bit more than ususal. I managed to survive, and even release some albums! Obviously some of these were were recorded and worked on prior to the randomness, but the extra time I had in the studio on my own meant that I could release a bit more than usual. Here are the full albums that came out in 2020, and I am especially proud of the collaboration albums (Blancmange, John Foxx & The Maths, and Wrangler), made with my true freinds and heroes and I cannot wait to be back in the studio here with them all as soon as possible

WRANGLER - A Situation


JOHN FOXX AND THE MATHS - Howl


WRANGLER - The Tourist


BLANCMANGE - Mindset


And here are my solo albums. These were all issued through my bandcamp page but are also on most other digital sites

Very PC

I've been look at buying an early PC to run my Synergy software from. It actually uses a Kaypro from the early 1980s for this task, and ebay has been very helpful. While reading up on the subject I found a good site that lists all the early systems in chronological order (oldcomputers.net). I find these things very attractive to look at. Some have great names too! Apple 3; Cannon Cat; Cromomco System 3; Fujitsu 3450; H89; IMB 5322; Intertec Superbrain; Kaypro 2; Apple Lisa; Commodore Pet; TRS80; Victor 9000

Emutions



I'm doing a bit of studio reorganisation and have decided to put all the lovely Emu modular modules together rather than having them spread around the room, and I'm going to get Chris to build a new cabinet too, so I'll update this blog later once its all done. In the meantime here is a video of the current setup

Ensoniq Feedback

A study on the Ensoniq TS-12 digital Transwave synthesiser. I shot this on an analog video camera switching unit and sent it back into itself to create the feedback effects
