VOD Records have released a superbly presented 8 LP boxed set collection of British Synthesiser artists on Vinyl, which I’m very pleased to say, includes my first album “Where Dark Forces Meet”. The huge boxed set of 8 12” vinyl records presented in a set of nicely matching sleeves, I can say without hesitation, truly is a lovely thing to own. This also is the first time my first album has been made available in Vinyl. It can be purchase separately if desired. The boxed set is called “British Cassette Culture Recordings 1975-1985”. Follow the link to VOD Records for info. I’ll put some images of the sleeves on this site in due course.
Cherry Red Records have now released beautiful 4 CD compilation of formative uk electronica 1975- 1984 called “Close to the Noise Floor”.......... 60 groups and artists have each contributed a track (including one from me) to this hugely impressive collection of electronic music. Not only this but the whole compilation is beautifully package in the form of a CD sized hard-backed book. Inside, accompanying the CDs, there is a complete written section on each artist and a collection of related photos and images.

My latest album (CD15) can be found listed on the Album Sales page or via the above left link. Unusually it has a formula (well, seemed like a good idea at the time) as its title but owing to the difficulty of using alternatives to text in many places like navbars etc. It’s also listed under the name “Euler” (actually pronounced “oiler”). Like “Void” it’s from my more experimental path of creation but this time hopefully showcasing what just a traditional modular synthesiser can do when allowed to be free!.
There is a massive resurgence of interest in modular synthesisers over the last few years. Many many new manufacturers of modules have sprung up creating a wide variety of devices from traditional item s to very strange ones. In Berlin recently there was a huge 3 day festival of modular synthesisers. Over here “Sound on Sound” magazine are planning a one day “Synthfest”. Info on this can be found here.... www.synthfest.co.uk .
All my albums are available in high bit rate MP3, FLAC loss-less studio quality and CD form. From the “Album Sales” section, my albums can now be purchased in any of these 3 formats. With each download, high resolution art work of the original CD covers is included . As there is no media duplication and artwork overheads,these savings are passed on to you so prices are considerably cheaper than CD. The mini album of demo and rehearsal tracks on the “Out of Control” page is free by the way.
