Spring in London

Jun 16, 2014 | Posts, Photography

A couple of months ago I was in London. While there I took a stroll through Greenwich Park. It was a very nice day, the sun was out and the clouds drifted by lazily. I had my camera with me and I tried to capture the mood I was in, walking there by myself. It was a combination of melancholy and elation, drenching me like a spring shower. I think the photos above reflect some of that. Click to enlarge.

I haven’t gotten round to editing all my material from that day or my time in London, because life is busy and some things just need to rest for a while, like wine in a barrel. But these three photos above made the cut and I wanted to share them.

I enjoy being outside in the meadows and among the trees but I hardly make the time anymore these days. Taking pictures is a good excuse though and I really should try to get out there more. The time I spent shooting for my Island Project, wandering through the dunes at the darkest moment of the year, was proof positive that I should try and get out more.

Hopefully my schedule will also allow me to go through the rest of the material and find a few more gems from that afternoon. I will share these in my Everyday section, where I post images I encounter as I live my life. Gonzo style! 🙂

Released 5 years ago today – Summer Of ’92

5 years ago today Shipwrec released my CausaliDox EP Summer Of ’92. In this post I take a look back and talk about what the tracks mean to me.

Sampling into Assimil8or

Today I decided to sample some non-electronic instruments into my Eurorack sampler. A tabla, a cabasa, a wooden flute and some pillbottles.

A critic in time

Today I spent some time selecting poems I wrote in my early 20’s for the website. It feels strange to critique myself and my poetry 20-some years later.

A synth sci-fi short story

I’m not recording. I’ve decided to just let this happen. It’s been going on for a while now. And I think it is probably too late anyway.

Lost in a memory hole

I’m not sure what happened. I got lost in a memory hole tonight. Well, I can reconstruct it, sort of. And it’s not like it hasn’t happened before.

Bob Knutton – It Sates Itself On Doubt

Ventured into darker regions today, tribal modular drums, echoing and distorted thrust me into the gloom. I explain how I recorded the track and what gear I used.

CausaliDox on NTRFRNZ Radioshow

This past week the track There Is Nothing In The World from my CausaliDox album Between The Leaves Lies Eternity opened the excellent NTRFRNZ radio show in Brasil.

sonOnos – Tomorrow

Got lost in the machines today. It was nice. 

CausaliDox – Cohort Death Signal

I wanted to make the Pro-One sound dangerous. Things started building from there. It sounds like an existential threat.

website redesign finished

Over the past 6 weeks I have worked on redesigning my website. It was hard work, but I am so glad I stuck with it, because I am quite happy with the redesign.
