Mists of Time is now available once again in CDR format. The tracks or mix have not changed, only the CD label has, which is now in colour.
Tape Leaders is a new book authored by Ian Helliwell. It is a compendium of early British tape music composers. Containing a wealth of information, it covers the period from the start of tape recording to around 1970. It is an impressive and thoroughly well researched book containing sections on so many early tape composers, both famous and obscure. Also featured are many really interesting rare photos from the period. It is highly recommended and can be purchased from “Sound on Sound Magazine” here.
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 is presented in a set of nicely matching sleeves. I can say without hesitation, truly is a lovely thing to own. This 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.
New Album. I have spent some time recently (well, spread thinly over the last few years) developing a new sound processing device for my studio. Initial experiments with this have proved quite fruitful (meaning surprisingly better than I expected) so a new album is underway based around this unique processor. As it’s all experimental, which means try stuff and see what happens and where it takes me, it’s hard to say when new music will be posted on this site. It will sound different though. In spite of many other commitments, progress on it has been reasonable so far. I’m hopeful it won’t be too long before I have something to add to my catalogue.
