For the last two months I have been working on an installation collaboration with Australian artist Mark Bolotin. Mark has an incredible installation he created called his Lumiphonic Creature Choir - imagine a 10 foot tall, 10 foot wide choir of floating heads… A very surreal instrument indeed! Mark contacted me with the interest of collaborating, and with my cluster visual techniques it was an excellent fit. We put our heads together and, working with two new pieces of my music, created a new ritual piece called The Cult.
We’ll be doing a test run of a piece of our show on September 25th, also serving as the launch of Mark’s new company with partner Asher Remy-Toledo, Hyphen Hub. We’ll present the first 2/3s of The Cult and then chat about how it was made in a salon setting.
Also with Alexandra Filipe (vocals) and Rhys Tivey (trumpet) and moderated by Toni Dove. Hope to see you there!

... just working. A lot. Lots of new music in the works, both experimental and pop. Maybe also some schizophrenia?Sound Forms with Peter Wetzler
A couple days ago very impressive and talented musician and composer Peter Wetzler interviewed me for his show, Sound Forms, which plays on local Kingston radio. Kingston has a thriving music and arts scene, and I’m so happy to have finally been introduced to a few of them. (I met Peter through my friend Jennifer, who is herself a singer!)
Anyway, Peter asked me to bring over a few songs of my own, plus some songs that I love and have influenced me. The result is this show, which is streamable from the station’s archive.Beckapedia and Guy Garvey, hooray
Got alerted by Google today about a 4 minute piece about me by Beckapedia during “Guy Garvey’s Finest Hour”, a great BBC 6 radioshow by Guy Garvey, lead singer for Elbow. SUPER YAY!
