Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Here lie my assorted noodlings. They range from audio-based ambient meanderings to beat driven synth wig-outs. One day I'm hoping that something of a common theme will emerge, but until then we'll just have to see what happens...
Things I love: lush reverbs, distortion, maracas, polyrhythms, screaming 303 lines, water trickling, phasing effects, tape saturation, Korg Monotron, things that sound a bit like a human voice but not quite, claustrophic spaces.
Music that's currently tickling me: Keith Fullerton Whitman, Autechre, Sunn O))), Andy Stott, Tim Hecker, Chelsea Wolfe, Belbury Poly, Deaf Center, Bohren & Der Club of Gore, Steve Reich, Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto.
I also write a blog reviewing albums and gigs in the vein of the above, which can be found here:
