A few weekends ago I went to stay with my good friends Martin Thompson and Lucia Chung in London. We had a fun time catching up, eating, drinking and watching Irish gypsies bare knuckle fight in the street outside their studio.
For the whole of this year Martin is making a sound piece every day using his Nord Modular and uploading to his site Monolog. This really is inspiring and hugely dedicated work. Late on the Saturday night Martin asked if I was into making a collaboration piece for his upload of that day. We sat down and played with
ideas of specific frequencies, textures, while sipping on some single malt. The outcome can heard here.

This Saturday, 7th July, Phantom Heron Seas and myself will be performing a collaboration set at Lushfest 2012, a festival curated by Lush, the lovely fresh handmade cosmetics peoples. The weekend looks to be a marvel of music, comedy, talks, demonstrations and vegan food. It sounds ideal to me, plus this will also be the least amount of traveling I've ever had to play a gig, as the festival takes place less than 4 miles from my front door. Music includes The Blue Trees, Richard Youngs, The Black Twig Pickers, Plastic Crimewave, Peter Delaney, Urthona and a whole bunch of others. Dead Wood / Phantom Heron Seas play at 1pm in the Anything But Ordinary tent.
