On Saturday 8th December I’ll be playing analogue synth and drums with AAS/Samekhmem for noise=noise. Our set will be a ritual invoking equilibrium and equivalence. The expanded Samekhmem lineup will also include Napoleon IIIrd (aka James Mabbett) on guitar, tape delay and drums.

Some of my work is being shown in a new exhibition in Leamington Spa from 2nd to 9th December.
“7 Days Of Sound, part of a larger 365 Days Of Sound project, will be brought to the not-for-profit venue by the Birmingham-based [RHP] CDR – a research, production and event programming organisation which is celebrating its first anniversary this year – which has obtained a grant from Warwick District Council to stage the festival.
“Featuring diverse work from around 50 British and international artists, the event will feature art, music, video, design, sound experimentation, performance art, electronics and much more – and all events are free to attend.” – Leamington Courier
The exhibition includes work by:
• Pete Wiseman
• Space Gambus Experiment
• Andy Hopkins
• Cormac Faulkner
• Graham Dunning
• The Zero Map
• Dead Wood
• Elizabeth Veldon
Full details and lineup here.
MortonUnderwood, instrument designers and creators of the incredible If Wet… series have compiled an album of previous guests’ tracks to raise funds for the next series. The album includes the resultant recording from my appearance at the event, a presentation of Music By The Metre.
The digital release through bandcamp is priced at “name your price” so please be generous in your support! Click here to preview and buy.
Back in September I presented the Music by the Metre project at If Wet, the makers’ and musicians’ show-and-tell series in Worcestershire organised by MortonUnderwood. This fantastic series of events is coming to the end of its first season and needs to raise some funds to continue. As such, their season finale will feature an auction and compilation, to which I’m donating some work.
During my presentation at If Wet I recorded a new Music by the Metre piece and documented the build with Polaroid photos. The If Wet compilation will feature a digitised version of the piece. For the auction I’m donating two pairs of framed Polaroids, taken on stock which was ten years past its use-by date. I’ve also prepared some bagged-up Music by the Metre – the original tape recording split into ten batches of nine metres – each of which come with a numbered photocopy of a diagram of the very first Music by the Metre set up.
Full info on how you can get hold of these or otherwise support the great work of If Wet is here: http://fundraiser.ifwet.org.uk
Some collage masks I made at the Apiary Salon run by Collagism are showing in a new show at Vestibule, from Thursday 7th till 14th November. Details below:
Collaborators Holly-Anne Buck and Adam Milburn present a piece of Sonic and Visual Collagism in ALIENESE 24 HOUR.
The pair began collaborating whilst living in Tokyo in 2002 with their Audio Visual project Mink Engine. Together their multidisciplinary work has been shown widely around the world. As artists and producers their work explores the relationship between sound and pictures.
ALIENESE 24 HOUR is a new video work created for the final Exhibition of a 6 month residency at The Vestibule Gallery. The piece explores the internet of you, me, them and whatever is 2013… Alienese24HOUR #Collagism

On Saturday 2nd November I’m attending Sonic Arts Forum in Colchester to present Music by the Metre. I’ll be discussing how the project started, it’s various performative and live permutations and how it will move forward into various collaborative and self published iterations.
