Anno – 5th December 2015


Listen to one of the tracks, “Invisible al cuore” below.

As of last year, I reinstated my earlier tradition of issuing a free Christmas or End of Year single/EP. This occurred in 2008 (Enlaced), 2009 (Spool), 2010 (Parlour) and last year (Red Eyes).

This year I’ve decided to expand the offering to an exclusive four-track suite which has been composed at my studio during November 2015.

Climate Century: Stranger (11 November – 13 December 2015)

"Stranger" element.

Stranger is a response to research and discussions concerning the impact of climate change in the Port District, and its likely effect on local ecosystems, inhabitants and man-made infrastructure. This work presents the listener with an auditory landscape from a hypothesised future, whereby a single entity remains with its lonely utterance; projecting its transmuted voice (derived from a now disappeared organism) into an empty field.

Stairwell and landing of Weiman Room, South Australian Maritime Museum, 122 Lipson Street, Port Adelaide.

Exhibition dates:

Objects for “New Wave” – new work coming in December

Objects of varying origin and permenance.

From organic and mechanical means
these objects
distinguish their form in the chaos of the tides and substrates
and appear like this before your very eyes
to be collected or left behind
to be lost and found again
on a another day
in a new wave

“Re imagining the mother” – Sound composition (2015)

Embedded image: element of Simone Kennedy’s “Re imagining the mother”

One of the most rewarding art projects I’ve been involved in over the past few years has been an ongoing association with the artist Simone Kennedy, where I’ve had the privilege to work closely with Simone and develop sound compositions and installation for two of her exhibitions in 2014 and 2015. Her most recent exhibition which is currently at SASA Gallery (“Re imagining the mother”) brings together work she has created over the course of her PhD. It is intensely beautiful, haunting and deeply affecting work, and I strongly encourage you to check out the exhibition whilst it is still going (until 11/9).

The source material for the composition is derived from the “Coronation Street” theme – originally composed by Eric Spear. The theme has been digitally processed so that tones are extended, whilst original pitch is maintained. The harmonic structure and texture of this rendered theme is extrapolated over four repetitions, affecting aspects of timbre and spatial quality.

Within the SASA space the composition is played back on continous loop and broadcast from two mounted speakers at a moderate volume so that it is acoustically confined to a specific area of SASA space, but yet is able to gently reverberate and diffuse through the entirety of the main space.

Great Panoptique Winter’s “Wildness” (2013) gets a physical release


The first release from new project Great Panoptique Winter (made up of members of Pretty Boy Crossover and Hood) has been assembled part by part, from the drum loops up. The results have a delicate, frosty atmosphere. Wildness is presented in a limited edition of 200, in a handmade envelope-CDr-polaroid assemblage, on Sound In Silence.

I perform some electronics, guitar and field recordings on the release.
