The FUKUSHIMA! event in Dorset last week was great fun! Matthew Shaw and myself performed an hour long improvised jam using various instruments, effects and electronics. A download of the recording is available for free or name your price donation to Project Fukushima!

Tomorrow FUKUSHIMA! music event is taking place simultaneously all over the world. In support of this, Matthew Shaw and myself will be performing an improvised collaboration at The Nine Stones Of Winterborne Abbas, Dorset. The evening will bring a study in ArcheoSonics, using the genius loci of this ancient site and the energy contained here to send a positive sonic message to Fukushima. The event is free entry and starts at 7:30pm. Later a recording of the performance will be available online, with any funds donated to Project Fukushima!
A few weeks ago I played a Houschka night at The Blue Boar pub in Poole, Dorset. These alternative shows have been running for a little while now, and this one was curated by Jack Chuter. I played a solo set comprising of improvised lo-fi guitar slew, mouth noise and junk. Plus at the end of the night I also took part in the Vacuus Collective jam with Jack Chuter, Allan Upton and Simon Patton. There's a beer filtered video of that set above! Thanks to Jack and Neil for organising the show.

I've been without a computer for a while, hence the lack of posts here lately. During this digital-free break I took off to the forest at weekends to jam with a tiny battery amp. The weather has been nice and it's too hot at home, so jamming outdoors made perfect sense. Mostly contact mic feedback screech, voice, an old junk guitar I found, a bag of pedals and sometimes a violin. I also did various outdoor collaborations with friends too. Some recordings from these summer sessions will be made available later in the year.
