WITHIN THE DOLMEN

I’ve just started a week long residency with The Penthouse NQ in the run up to the Noise Above Noise event on the 27th. Here are some images of the initial stages of set up. I’m going to be making some form of artefacts that will be broadcasting the sounds I’m making. More images and sounds to come…

Tim Croft and I recently projected a performance in Baltic 39 as part of their RIFF/T exhibition. A brief video on the event is above. More to follow when we’ve decided who we’re going to document the performance in full…

Recording from an as yet unnamed ambient/drone project with Jake Bielby.

Here is a compilation of sounds (with a Dolmen Dweller track nestled in there as well). Go have a listen/download/purchase and support interesting noises.

Metal Tubing and effects. Drones and ambience.

I’ve been playing with using electric motors to generate tones. Here are the results of the first experiment. I’ve run a low pass filter on the signal from the motor to smooth the tone out a bit then multitracked it. Five recordings layered over each other. The end result of this should yield some form of sculptural installation/group performance piece…

A loud screening I’m involved in on the 6th Feb…
James Watts and Tim Croft, in a literal response to the exhibition theme, will explore privately within the RIFF exhibition space the synchronisation of riff into an unsynchronised rift. The documentation of this performance will be unharmoniously imposed on to the RIFT exhibition.
