Wabi-Sabi compilation

My Modersohn-Becker track “Properly Wrong” is featured, along with an absolutely huge selection of various other DIY musical delights by others, on a compilation of Wabi-Sabi music over at Pimpmelon Records.

“Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese aesthetic of finding the beauty in imperfections. One of the untapped subjects of this aesthetic is the music world – until now!

Throughout musical history, over time we’ve grown to accept many aspects of Wabi-Sabi into our listening. Things like Free Jazz, Improvisational, Spoken Word, Poetry, Glitch, and more. Not only in genre, the aspects are also present in things like unfinished symphonies, alternate/unfinished/or unmastered mixes, as well as live tracks that go awry.

This compilation album collects all of these aspects and more, ranging a tonne of genres, recording styles, methods, etc. It is the biggest free collection of “imperfect” music to date, hopefully one that will help many people appreciate this style of music. “a1260291472_10

Supernormal

For the fourth year in a row I have been invited to take part in Supernormal, the arts and music festival, which  takes place from the 9th to the 11th of August at Brazier’s Park in Oxfordshire.

This year,  rather than perform as part of improvising musical ensembles as in past editions of the festival, I will be showing two new artworks: a performative piece and a video work.
Stay tuned for more news.

Unknown Devices at the Barbican

I will be performing live at the Barican as part of the large improvisational group Unknown Devices this Saturday 12/05/2013 from 5.45pm.
Entry to the performance is free.

Here’s another Modersohn-Becker track I just made.

This one’s called NOT.

I’m just going to keep making tracks and posting them here, and try not to think about whether they are good or not… just keep making and posting.

Hopefully some of you enjoy these!
