I recently had the pleasure of photographing Manchester based actor, Chris Brett. Chris is a wonderful, funny and super talented guy, and great to work with. Check out his site for more info on his work.
Not only did I make a lot of noise this festive season due to the overwhelming amount of social gatherings that seemed to capture me, but I also had an opportunity to finally drag the mics out of their hiding places and work on some recordings with saxophonist Sam Andreae.
We’ve just started mixing some of the tracks but to get an idea of the kind of stuff Sam is working on, check out this super cool video made by Angela Guyton.
Originally broadcast on 1st May 2013 at 13:00 by octopuscollective.org, the show is now available to listen to on the Kinokophone Soundcloud channel…or below. Check it out to hear some beautiful field recordings from across the globe, all past submissions to Kinokophonography, and to hear the stories behind them:

I only discovered this wonderful festival and competition last week and have been rattling my brains for ideas ever since. This years theme is ‘Appetite’. For more info and to find out how to enter, check out their site:
I generally have a huge appetite for most things; food, music, sound, adventure, wine, nature, cities, cycling, travelling and specifically, due my current proximity to the sea, FISH & CHIPS with MUSHY PEAS! Hmm, maybe there’s an idea in that…
I finally got around to importing my old Posterous blog into WordPress, which was pretty simple. However, it didn’t pull over any audio as WordPress requires an upgrade to host it, so I have to find time to replace old audio posts via Soundcloud as the links to the old posts will soon expire with the imminent death of Posterous…more organising I guess but the geek in me kind of enjoys it.
At last, All Other Things Being Equal is set to open on 1st December 2012 and will run until 2nd June 2013.
The exhibition is a based on the research and work of scientist and photographer Johan Oldekop, including sounds by me. For this exhibition I have attempted to create an immersive quad channel sound piece that aims to place the listener on the fragile line between two very different, yet very connected, sonic environments. To get an idea of the kinds of sounds that I recorded on location and that have made the final mix, check out my project page.
