TodAY BREAD, TOMORROW SECRETS
This album from Moon Wiring Club reveals a world where humans and birds dine together at a bewitching, Edwardian post-theatre banquet.
I appear on recorder, extemporising fragments of the kind of minuets and gigues that were taught to birds in the eighteenth century. The album was originally available on CD and vinyl with different tracks served up on each format. The CD version is packed with electronic tracks in compound time signatures that lilt like a high Baroque dance suite. The LP is largely cut from the same source material but is a more laid back affair, sans beats – an electronic lullaby of sorts. Now available on Bandcamp.
DOWN TO THE SILVER SEA
I’ve contributed three tracks to this pearlescent summer compilation edited by Moon Wiring Club. This LP also features sounds from Jon Brooks, Time Attendant, Knö, Howling Moss (seaside cousin of Pye Corner Audio) and the editor Moon Wiring Club.
MESSAGE AND METHOD
Lost signals and the poetical science of Ada Lovelace are the themes of Message and Method, a collaboration between my early band Spacedog and Belbury Poly. Available on vinyl and as a download, Message and Method is no 10 in the Ghost Box Study Series. Availabe from the Ghost Box shop. My original mix of ‘The Messenger’ is available on my solo album Ealing Feeder.
