Howling Wolf Mk1

I am thrilled to share the news that one of my pieces just got selected for the latest Cities and Memory global project, 'Yellowstone' - this composition of mine, called Howling Wolf, was framed around a field recording of two Lamar Valley wolves howling at the dawn. I've been developing ideas along these lines for some time now, and the 'Mk2' version will feature on my hopefully-very-soon-to-be-forthcoming album Experiments In Sound, which has been over ten years in the making and has sat by patiently whilst I have attended to many other things that I could not neglect.

You can listen to Howling Wolf (Mk1) by clicking on the image below to open the Yellowstone project page: it's the third one down from the top of the list (the original field recording is called 'Wolves'). Enjoy!

Sounds of SOAS

If you're in the area of London village and the snow hasn't stopped you moving, then come on down to the Brunei Gallery at SOAS to hear an amazing array of musical sounds from all over the world. I'm doing a short set with Rajasthani tabla player Mohanish Jaju, and we've never even met before so it should be fun!

UNSKIN  

So much fun hanging out with these guys last week and laying down some crazy riffs on Hai Saint's awesome soundtrack to the forthcoming Crimson Black film UNSKIN - brainchild of the wonderful Elcid Assei (photos below by the man himself). Needless to say, the sāraṅgī was the star of the session - and the crushed avocado. The colours in Hai's music room are awesome...
