Looking back to a time where I just made things without thinking about it too much.
I was trying to recreate Krzysztof Penderecki-esque music on my digital audio workstation (DAW) with a drum machine, guitar, effects rack and a Casio keyboard. My DAW was an expensive (now worth basically nothing) high tech device at the time able to master and burn CD’s. I would burn and hand these CD’s out to my friends to see what they thought. One of the best reactions I received was from a friend who had to pull his car over because he thought there was something wrong with his engine. After opening the bonnet and having a look at the motor he realised that it was the CD and promptly removed it.
This exhibition sees the release of my latest sound work: a guided meditation and ambient listening experience.
Take off your shoes, settle into the bean bag, close your eyes, shut up and listen.
