茶 A Quiet Song

A Quiet Song is a new release I’ve been working on for a few months, and which is now available. Call it an isolation hymn; a paean to inwardness and reflection; a song of songs without words.

Sing—quietly—with me to the birds of this strange summer, in ceremony not in cerements.

You can listen to and buy the album here.

Distants

Released today, Distants is a collection of compilation tracks, online pieces (self-released and released by others) and some other oddities. There’s one very short unreleased track, which comes from the same sessions as Suburban Electrification.

There are 28 pieces across more than 120 minutes, and there’s a lot of variety in tone and texturesomething for everyone, perhaps? I’ve set the release as “pay what you like” so you can download for free if you wish. If you do want to pay something for it, today (Friday 5 June) is one of the days when Bandcamp is waiving its fees so today would be the perfect opportunity for a purchase! (And all other releases are set the same way, too, in case there’s anything you’re missing…)

You can find Distants here.

Thanks to you all for listening and I hope you are able to stay safe and well.

Prelapsarian

I’ve released a new, longform piece today for free download, or pay what you want, if you’re so inclined. It’s entitled Prelapsarian and you can get it here.

This is a mediation on the lumbering, sneering bulk of Time; and on forgotten places, occluded spaces, in days past I choose to recall as more innocent. It is for Jill, with love.

The piece was recorded in earlier this Spring 2014 and mixed and mastered this month, in Edinburgh. A small, private, physical edition for friends is contemplated.

Let me know what you think of it.
