Atlantic CoastStarting and finishing with the sound of waves I recorded on the Atlantic Coast of West Cork, Ireland this ambient piece is about the gentle awe inspired by a calm summer's day looking out over the mighty ocean.

For Those Lost In SpaceImprovisation on Access Virus b and Korg microSTATION.
Ecological Lament Evolution
Ecological Lament EvolutionAn enhanced, remixed and added to version of Ecological Lament. I just happened to play along with the song and realised it enhanced the whole thing so I added the extra track. A track inspired by the wholesale destruction of our environment and the latest threat - fracking. I never understand how any person can value money over nature...
RunningUp tempo almost trancey track
The LakeInspired by a video on Facebook "My impressions of More Ohr Less", a concert held on a stage on a lake. The picture is of a lake on the Mendips in Somerset, UK. Recorded entirely with Akai SynthStation on the iPad

On The Winter Solstice
On The Winter SolsticeA track composed and recorded on the Winter Solstice 21.12.12, just using a Novation UltraNova and A Clavia Nord Lead 3. The first piece of music done in my new studio.
Leaving WestburyMy final piece in my studio/home of 37 years before moving. An extended piece featuring me on synthesizers and programming, engineering and recording, Dave Gouldney on Floydian guitar and David Oliver on assorted percussion. The track will be released as part of my first album for 12 years in the New Year.
Wagga WaggaAn experiment in modular synthesis. The system is a Doepfer Dark Energy being sequenced by a John Macedo 4 step analog sequencer output through a Moogerfooger Ring Modulator and a Line 6 DL4. DE VCF is being modulated by a Moogerfooger CP-251 Control Processor which is also modulating the Moogerfooger Ring Modulator/ The CP-251's LFO is being processed through a lag control distorting the LFO sine wave. The internal LFOs of the DE and the Ring Mod are also functioning, giving a very odd almost speechlike result... Not exactly musical, but interesting!
Purple SageAn sort of Drum N' Bass experiment done with iSequence on the iPad with voice samples from Ken Campbell reading Robert Anton Wilson's "Illuminatus" audio book. This is the most complex thing I've done on iSequence so far and is pretty dark!
The Mountain Path
The Mountain PathAn experiment with Garage Band on the iPad came up with this Middle Eastern flavoured number, just right for wandering around the Himalayas of the Hindu Kush!
Stop the Machine
Stop the MachineA track I recorded during the last Tory government! An angry, revolutionary call to arms that seems as appropriate today as it did at the time and at the time the main voice sample was recorded in 1968. Unfortunately it has a few pops on it and I can't find a better version, this seems to be the only one I have in the archive.
Ever OnwardThis is another of my iPad creations with iSequence. Bit of an In The Nursery / Laibach / film soundtrack vibe to this one, not really a live track, but interesting....
Indian AuraMy best iPad/iPod demo yet! Indian feel track, another one for a nice summery day. Should be great as another live tune with David Oliver's added percussion.
Rootz & Kulture
Rootz & KultureAnother of my IPad/iPod demo tunes, this time with a Reggae feel (I think...) Jut the thing for a warm summer's evening and jamming with David Oliver.
Summere Evening Groove
Summere Evening GrooveAnother idea created on the iPad using iSequence and iPod Touch using VirSyn Addictive Micro Synth for doing with David Oliver. Recorded as the sun set over Westclose Hill outside my studio window...
SunriserA track recorded using iSequence on the iPad and Akai SynthStation on an iPod Touch controlled by an Akai SynthStation 25 keyboard. this is an idea fro busking with percussionist David Oliver

Winter EveningMy new track recorded live with the Akai SynthStation app on my iPod Touch controlled by the Akai Synthstation 25 keyboard controller. Basically it's two arpeggiated synths with a live lead played on the third. Recorded live into ProTools, trimmed, faded in/out and a small amount of Bass EQ added. Sounds great when you consider it's from an iPod! ...oh, and you can tell it's live!
