Work begins on Captain Ko and the Planet of Rice – great to be working with Dancing Brick again and looking forward to new collaboration with video artist, Susanne Dietz. I am also very pleased to have made contact with Matthias Bopp, a ham radio and astronomy hobbyist in Germany, who is kindly providing us with “sounds from space” that were recorded from his Shack. Matthias’ website includes a collection of his own and others’ recordings as well as a wealth of information.

Piece selected for Get Carter Step Sequence at The Pixel Palace, Tyneside Cinema as part of the Get Carter 40th Anniversary celebrations throughout March. “9 Down” makes use of the unusual speaker configuration in the stairwell to realise a virtual space with gulls circling at the top of the stairs and waves crashing below. An audio trailer that explores field recordings informed by Get Carter.
