Working on Aether

Apr 28, 2016 | Posts, Portfolio, Photography

My new project is called Aether, a new photoseries that explores the concept of science fiction photography. I was recently interview by The Crazy Mind about this new project. You can find the interview here:


Depicting imagined celestial phenomena, stellar clouds, the event horizon of a black hole and the surface of distant planets, these images conjure up a melancholy yearning for the impossible. The series consists of 25 images, that I’ve bundled in a photo book.

I’m currently working on finding a publisher for the book and looking for galleries to collaborate on exhibitions. These images are meant to be seen in a large format, so the book and the eventual (very) limited edition prints will be quite large. You can inquire about purchasing the book or prints here.

As you might (or might not) know, I’m also a musician. I’m working on a concept for a collaborative music album to accompany the series and possibly bundle with the book. The Aether album would consist of mainly ambient electronic music produced by me and other musicians. I haven’t worked out what format I’ll choose for the album, if we go ahead with this idea. The thought of a physical album (vinyl or cd) is appealing, but the ephemerality of a digital release is also very appealing in the context of this project.

I’m aiming for a release date for the book and album sometime after the summer.

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.

CausaliDox – You’ll Know When

The first track in 6 weeks. I have been busy, distracted, agitated, frustrated... Does one instinctively sense the end of things? I wonder. I'd hope I'd know. You'll know when I know. Gear...
