It is AMAZING to finally share this with everyone as I found out in January that i’d be playing Glastonbury Festival.

I am particularly excited to play this festival, not because of Adele.., or because of it being full of lots and lots of people, but mainly because when I told my Dad he stopped dead on the phone and when completely quiet, and when I told my mum she shrieked so much I think my earpiece in my phone broke.

Glastonbury is a great festival, one of many great festivals, but it is the only one that spanned generations and countries enough for my Grandma to be congratulating me, knowing the importance of it, as well as my relatives in Australia. and for that experience, I am really really grateful. All of the hard work my family have put into supporting what I do, and I’ve finally been able to turn around and say, i’m doing something which you can understand the cultural significance of. It’s a really bloody nice feeling.

An interview with Electronic Music Wales

Hari from Electronic Music Wales was kind enough to invite me to do an interview for their site.
You can read our chat here – EMW

Covering topics – cheating in music, live electronic improvisation, stealing culture and field recordings, what it’s like to release through a label, studying music in the University of Wales, Newport, and other bits and bobs.

ableton live – in the studio

I’ve recently been working in the studio with Ableton, for composition.
This is completely new to me, as I have only previously used Ableton for Live sets.
Here’s something I was messing around with this afternoon.

– It might be worth mentioning I have been listening to some more experimental stuff lately, retracing my university learning, Jacob Kirkeegard, Steve Reich, Alvin Lucier, the usual suspects.

and here’s what it looks like
