Site Revisit: Mount Coot-tha

Hello! Here’s the second of my Site Revisit series. I’ve been laying a bit low lately but things are pretty exciting coming up. Am off to Europe tomorrow for a short residency at CAMP in southern France, some news on a new album in a few weeks and some touring in May/June. In the meantime….

  • Location: Mount Coot-tha (Brisbane, Australia)
  • Date: March 2018
  • Video: Mount Coot-tha – summit, mahogany trail
  • Audio: field recordings (recorded on phone) + snippet of previously unreleased piece 20160509.
  • Render: 1280 x 720.m4v

In 2018 I’m releasing my third solo album and am planning on doing some touring around that, as well as some residencies, work travel and some holidays. As part of my touring, I’m working on developing an A/V live performance; and am enjoying playing around with lightly edited video in general.

The content for this second video was created ad hoc whilst doing a few hikes up Mount Coot-tha in Brisbane in March 2018, whilst trying to get myself ‘climb fit’ for an upcoming residency. Quickly did some editing and inserted some extra field recordings and other music, so here we are.

Site Revisit: Clear Mountain

Video: bush walks by day, hotel walks by night.
Audio: field recordings (recorded on phone) + snippet of previously unreleased piece Illusory Breakthroughs.

In 2018 I’m releasing my third solo album and am planning on doing some touring around that, as well as some residencies, work travel and some holidays. As part of my touring, I’m working on developing an A/V live performance; and am enjoying playing around with lightly edited video in general.

This first video was created whilst on a little break to Clear Mountain, just outside Brisbane. It was great to spend a couple of days not checking emails/looking at screens – well aside from creating some video on bush walks and night walks around the hotel. Quickly did some editing and inserted some extra field recordings and other music, so here we are.

2017 reflections

notalbum

 

Hello! Happy New Year! I’m really looking forward to sharing a new album with you all sometime later this year, to playing my music live to (hopefully!) as many of you as possible and to a really exciting and positive year in general for all of us!

A bit of frank honesty too to give all of the above some context and not to seem like some self-promotion automaton. At a fair few stages over the last year I managed to somehow both drastically over *and* under think about how and why I make music, which resulted in a lot of unnecessary tinkering and distraction that didn’t actually result in anything aside from self doubt and/or apathy. I realised (only belatedly and recently) that I’d mentally burned myself out on making music, to a point where for a while I was contemplating stopping playing live and releasing music altogether. There’s a creative confusion/relevance deprivation cycle that can get pretty vicious pretty quickly… Fortunately I’ve re-evaluated a lot of things about how and why I want to make music and share it; but for anyone else who has been in the same boat with music/interests/life/etc, know that you’ve got a pal in me.

So yeah! Happy 2018! I’m incredibly excited to share what I think is my best album to date (sure, it’s taken a while to get there!), a new live set that’s still a work in progress for now but is a big cut above what I’ve done previously and also to hear all of the other wonderful music from around the world this year! (despite my own musical struggles last year; 2017 was *not* lacking for amazing music, I was so damn inspired by so many wonderful albums and honoured to see so many amazing musicians live).

Okay, thanks for reading that. As a “reward” for your patience, check out the sneaky stream below of an early version of a piece that will be on the next album.

Mixtape 3

Mixtape3

Hi,

I’ve been finishing off a third album which will be out in 2018 – which I can’t wait to share with you all in the new year!

Mixtape 3 is *not* the new album.  Free / pay if you like download via bandcamp.

For this entirely unexpected edition of my ‘Mixtape’ series, I’m doing something a bit different! This one is all about getting some sleep. I made this entirely for my own purposes but after using it to get to sleep for a few nights thought I’d share it, in case it maybe helps you too?

Recently I’ve been noticing light pollution at night more than I ever have before, as well as trying to fall asleep with an active mind. So I thought I’d fully embrace the idea of ‘genre music’ to create some music to doze off to. To do this I went kind of silly playing around with some cheesy pads, delays and presets on the synthesiser; as well as incorporating some phone recordings of recent rain here in Brisbane.

It all came together really quickly one night a short while back, with the three tracks (all variants on the same theme/key/notes) created in one night, with a bit of subsequent mixing the next days to get the sleep/sound balance right.

Each track has been mixed at a slightly lower volume than the previous track, to hopefully slowly lull people to sleep.

Designed by be listened to at low volume, either on speakers or earphones.

Spring Break

sm

Hello! Here’s a photo of me live at Sonic Masala Fest in Brisbane a few weeks back. It was a really fun day! It was also (most likely) my final show of the year. I’m taking a bit of time out to prepare both a new live set and a new album for a second quarter 2018 release and touring. More on all of that early next year! Thanks to everyone who came along to shows this year, had some great times. See you in 2018!
