new music

I'm ridiculously busy at the moment. My new job and the course I'm enrolled on are keeping me up to my eyeballs in work.

i have had the gaze of a muse upon me the last few days though and have put the finishing touches to 2 long form drone pieces. I've no idea what I'm going to do with them - they'll probably sit on my hard-drive for the next year or so until i have the time to make them available.

I've also been working on some tunes for the next in the Phantasms series. it's a very different discipline working with such small time frames but it's good fun. their main appeal is that i can work on them for 10 minutes - feel I've done something productive (life wise) and then go back refreshed to doing something productive (work wise).

There will be two releases from me soon. The next month or so will see the release of A Slow Feather Falls on my own Quiet World label. ASFF is a collaboration with one of my regular musical partners field recordist Banks Bailey.

Also in the immediate future is a release on Adrian Shenton's Phonospheric label called 'Passing Through Occasionally'. I'll not be getting any spare copies of this so please check with Adrian if you'd like one.

Wonderful Wooden Reasons is currently backlogged but progressing. I may possibly adopt the blog format for the foreseeable future until my workload decreases.
