Images below: my new work, New Wave (2015)
More info on the piece to come.
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.

Objects of varying origin and permenance.
From organic and mechanical means
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
It’s been awhile since I used the excellent Academia resource for anything vaguely academic, but I’m planning to use it a bit more this year for the purpose of making available archived text and graphical scores; programme notes and short essays. Stay tuned!
To accompany the Pink Twine (2005) release on my Bandcamp portal, I published a short essay detailing the background, development and installation of the work. The notes can now be accessed via my Academia profile:
It’s ten years since I made my first sound installation work, Pink Twine. How the time goes!
To commemorate this, I’ve made the 2014 release of the Pink Twine audio a free download for the entirety of February. I’ve also written some new liner notes which include photos from the installation of the work.
