Nono Yes

I have no idea what they are talking about, but it sounds really interesting:





Actually, the above film seems to have been directed and written by Giorgio Sancristoforo, the person in this very cool video:

Postcards From Another World

In my previous post I posted about Unmann Wittering who also posts on the Found 0bjects blog, the world trade centre for all things Hauntological. There, I stumbled upon the fantastic and vividly-otherworldly-world of John Hinde, who documented the strange planet that the previous generation inhabited









Burnel, Laker and Zigo

Here is another video, which I saw on the excellent Unmann Wittering blog. I'm going to throw out all my keyboard stands and just play them on the floor from now on as well




UPDATE: Please check out JJB's album "Euroman Cometh" for some serious post punk synth / drum machine / look:

Hard Work

Theres still a lot to do here at the studio today. This is the hole I've got to fill with doors, then soundproof the stairs, then decorate everything, then mix my new album



State of the Art (in 1971)

Serge Sequence Stages

Here is a video I made of me messing around on the Serge Modular. I set up a sequence the other day for my new album, and today I adapted it so I could interact with the sequencer as it played. The sequencer has a switch for each stage that holds the voltage but if other switches are engaged it moves on to that one and so on, etc. I put the signal through the Ibanez AD80 analog delay too

Word of the Week #4

Essex Village Modernism

We visited this house yesterday, a mostly original late 60s house right in the center of a quaint Essex village. It is a tempting prospect, if a bit small and overlooked. Afterwards we drove to the studio in Hoxton and it took just under 45 minutes. Very tempting indeed!
