new tape on naviar records!

"Words divide, tones unite."
-Victor Zuckerkandl, 1956

Been making music since the mid-90s. i was into triphop/d'n'b/rave back then and i used to spend hours cutting up little samples and putting them back together in the wrong order..

then i got into chillout and ambient electronica but i really struggled making sample based music like that and i pretty much gave up for a few years until i got more into blues/post rock/noise and got a thing called a guitar which coupled with heaps of fx made a great noise! who knew! from there i got more and more into cassette drone and became addicted to ambient hiss..

I've kind of gone full circle now doing a lot of post processing on samples but you'll hear a lot of my instruments in there too (kalimba, glockenspiel, 12 string/semiacoustic/bass guitar, electric piano, appalachian dulcimer, harmonica) well somewhere in the dirge..

Now though my music's a lot more conceptual - the improvisations are influenced by the psychotherapeutic notion of presence, as well as the 'yes, and' perspective from comedy improv - being in the moment with the music and going wherever it leads.

i'm always up for collaborations and remix work, just ask. but it might be pretty unrecognisable from your original.. feel free to remix/use my tracks but let me know
