I am very grateful indeed to be able to still produce work within the realms of sound while under these extreme and harsh conditions and times. I sincerely hope that we will all ride out what will be likely the approaching rough and possibly violent storms ahead.
Sound for me has many healing qualities. It is from here that I work and focus my energy to either dispel and cast out demons or to summon and raise spirit. The following two recent singles are from both the light and dark realms (and some transitory and strange places in-between), plainly revealing themselves. The colour and the black and white, the ethereal and the mundane, the transformative and the destructive.
The track Stay Inside Yourself was recorded during isolation lockdown exclusively for the Dark Inside, a Dark Outside event on 2nd May 2020 which was streamed live on Further In. The Dark Outside is a site specific 24 hour radio broadcast that broadcasts sounds and music never heard before in a place where nobody might hear it which was originally the darkest place in Scotland and now has expanded to sites across the UK. It has grown from just 6 listeners in 2012 to well over 3000 in 2020. Since the coronavirus pandemic this event has twice gone online via the streaming art platform Further In.
