Apologies to anyone who is going to/went to Plastic festival in Brussels on 23.10.10 as this event was cancelled at the 11th hour. Due to criminal damage the festival at Belle View brewery was unable to go ahead due to broken eqipment and theft. I am very shocked as the festival organisers worked very hard to put it together and I was also really looking forward to playing live on the bill with Lokai.
Any day now my new limited edition cd called 'Silenne' will be out on the wonderful Belgium label Slaapwel. The piece was designed to literally fall asleep to it so the 33 minute track is a calm and slowly evolving piece that takes a simple guitar loop and dissolves it using various DSP techniques in my homemade software.
Also due out very soon, probably mid November, will be an acoustic 7" called 'Depart/Repeat' I recorded with Nils Frahm in Berlin. It was cut at Dubplates by Lupo and it features Nils on Piano with me playing an acoustic and singing. Expect something a little different as I am pretty naked on this recording but I love the simple analogue instrumentation (the studio was analogu too) as it contrasts with previous digital releases. A special concert will be held in Cambridge on 29th November to celebrate this release and also playing is Erik Skodvin (Deaf Center, Svafter Greiner and Miasmah records labek boss) and Type Record's Ryan Teague who are both releasing records very soon on Sonic Pieces.
Last but not least I created 'electronics'/programmed textures on the new 'Sailors with wax wings' album (out now) that features a host of exceptional talent including Ted Parsons (Swans/Godflesh/Prong), Aidan Baker (Nadja), Simon Scott (Slowdive), Dominick Fernow (Prurient/Cold Cave), Vern Rumsey (Unwound), Hildur Gudnadottir (Múm/Throbbing Gristle/The Knife), James Blackshaw, [and artwork by] David Tibet (Current 93)> http://sailorswithwaxwings.bandcamp.com/album/sailors-with-wax-wings">
