Coded Transmissions




Crystals and Waves

I’ll write more about the gig when I get the recording/video until then, this is the pure sonification of X-ray crystallographic data.

I’ll be joining the institute of stone age sex at the end of March to play in the temple works in Leeds and teh elitist at has asked me to go over to Sweden to play in his local park as part of his university studies which is very exciting. More about these gigs to follow…

Bang The Bore


The Rumour is about to be revealed, the lie that has existed from the beginning of time will manifest itself through me today. I am excited and terrified, there is no burden of shame. Rumour will continue beyond me, she will appear anywhere, everywhere. So Aghartha is coming to life, she sought chaos, without realising chaos sought her. Trouble abounds, rumours, lies. But today I take temporary ownership of the biggest lie and through pheme will share it will anyone who will listen.

What lies are these?

Compilers, Collectors, Collaborators & Combinations

I L S E music

I L S E is a labour of love, a non-profit label which distributes beautiful music in a  selection of formats. The collection of releases is breathtaking with many of my favourite artists and wonderful collaborations. The creator and guardian of the label is inspiring, clearly devoted to the purpose he makes no money but does make wonderful music.

Mary Bateman

An old friend recently contacted me about collaborating on a project which will include noise and mischief. The main goal of her project is to release the remains of Mary Bateman from captivity in the Thackray Medical Museum.

Pheme’s words have breathed life into Aghartha; she is on the bill.

Music: The Devadasi

Time isn’t moving forwards but it still flows, perception of flux is dependent on the centroid. If at the centre there is a hole, we must fill it.
