Angus Graham Memorial Lectures 2010 – 2016

Back in 2002 I graduated from SOAS, University of London. My favourite classes were Classical Chinese. In the year that followed I aspired to continue with graduate studies…

Found sound piece through collaboration

In early May I found an interesting piece of audio on a MiniDisc, and set about making a piece with open feedback during the process. As the found…

A radio feature, a travelogue. A version of an RTÉ Doc on One that I never made – despite help and support from them and Russell Finch, I…

2011 in Inverse Proportion

Technique: grab some stuff from the Raw Audio folder, all from 2011; line it up; export. Voila!

Raven Wood on the Winter Solstice

Went off to Raven Wood today. It’s an interesting place, coniferous woodland on sand dunes, with the Irish Sea on one side and reclaimed mudflats on the other….
