Tell us about yourself!
i'm an ambient music artist/producer and sound designer/sound engineer (though i rarely use synthesisers or synthesised sounds - with 95% of my sounds created using just the bass guitar). i'm also a "full-time" member of the global musical collective that is 48Cameras.

i like to dabble, now and then, with a bit of photography,

Bandcamp release of "there is only now"

Posted on November 15, 2013 at 2:31pm 4 Comments

after just over a year of it selling out on the Sirenwire label here in the U.K, i have finally decided to upload "there is only now" to Bandcamp as a download only version. it comes with a new sleeve (by me), and the 3, original sized, photo's of Kinego Bay by my old friend Garvan. it's not "strictly" ambient, as it has vocals/oboe and piano, but it is, in other ways. it's 3 tracks only, running at around an hour long. it is, of course, free to listen in to :-) many thanks for your…

cheap, but good, mastering service

after months of deliberation and consideration, i'm officially touting for mastering work. not my normal modus, but.. i can get testimonials if needed, or you can check out my own works, which can be found here, and elsewhere. to say i'm cheap is a huge understatement - typically $100.00 - $150.00 for a full album (this works out at around only £60.00 an album) - but that doesn't mean i cut corners. i have 25 years experience as a sound recording engineer, and have been mastering and mixing…
