I’m currently working on some recordings with Dutch musician Machinefabriek.
This will be our third album together.. I’ve recorded quite a bit of bowed piano as well as some Vibrissa and bowed acoustic guitar. Next up will be some recordings of my new acoustic synthesiser guitar..looking forward to that!
I finished the mixing the album recordings last month. Byron Scullin has just completed the mastering at Moose Mastering in Richmond. Can’t wait to see and hear these in vinyl form. (No label yet.)

The Overtone Ensemble with special guest Philip Brophy.
As part of Liquid Architecture’s “Sonic City” festival, the ensemble will perform using vibrissae microtonal rod instruments, massed handbells, (including a set of the Federation bells) and assorted percussion.
In addition I’ll be constructing a number of long wire string instruments specifically for this performance. These are 30 metres in length, attached to large resonating drums and are played by hand.
The multipurpose room is huge with long reverb times, and will be a fantastic venue for this special performance.
