Flowers
The picture of the flowers above, I took back in April, when I was over in London for a visit. I saw them basking in the sun and couldn’t resist. I normally don’t go for pictures of flowers, but in this instance, I thought I’d make an exception. I like the colors.

New projects
Today is the first of June, summer’s here, time to make some summer plans. I’ve been taking stock of my projects and most of it is done. So there might actually be time to focus on some new ideas. First up, I’ve been talking to Scholten Awater and they are interested in doing another corporate video with me. The previous one I did for them they really liked, so we’ll see what happens. This would be something that would get shot during June.

The musicvideo I shot for A Life Less Lived with my friends in Hong Kong, is still in production. Hopefully we’ll be able to finish the last of the post-production on it, so we can release it this summer. I’m very excited for that one to hit the web! You can listen to the track right here:



Vignettes and exhibitions
There’s another project I’m hoping to get underway this summer and that’s filming the first of my cinematic vignettes. These are (very) short films that are centered around a single idea or thought, just a glimpse into one of my worlds. The first one I’ve written the synopsis for. Now I need to go hunt for a location and find me a crew and actors.

Something else I really would like to get a jump on in the coming months is finding the opportunity to work with a gallery to showcase some of my photography work. If you own a gallery or know someone who owns a gallery that might be interested in a collaboration, please contact me!

 

 

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.
