“Humbuckers” at West Space Gallery

IMG_3353

I’m curating a night of  guitar, entitled “Humbuckers” at the West Space Gallery on October 15th. It’s part of the “Tomorrow the World” festival which runs at West Space from October 13 to November 1st:

“Invented way back in the 1950s, the humbucker is a guitar pickup that reduces hum and noise from electromagnetic interference. Ever since then guitarists have been finding ways of adding noise back into the signal. Feedback, distortion, altered tunings, guitar preparations, live-sampling, electronic modification and customised effects are some of the ways in which players have sought to circumvent guitar orthodoxy. ‘Humbuckers’ showcases three local guitarists employing different strategies for extending and transcending the limitations of the common electric guitar.”

Featuring Dave Brown (Candlesnuffer), myself and Bonnie Mercer (Grey Daturas)

“Glisten”

“Glisten” is a new CD coming out on Low Point. It’s a collaboration with Dutch musician, Machinefabriek, who was  described by the Wire magazine as “..one of the most interesting new experimental musicians”.  I’m very happy with how it turned out.  More soon..
