about

I like a challenge, especially if it’s one that involves reimagining field recordings to create sound pictures.

Have you noticed that the tiniest birds have the loudest voices?
For this challenge - *For the Birds! or, Avian Flew*, I used the field recordings provided of coastal North Carolina birds radhaus.box.com/v/ForTheBirds and after the usual lo-fi low tech processing, Metal Wing emerged. I began with slowing down sections of the file to create an atmospheric strange world, where I imagined the trees have leaves of glass and the tiny birds are brightly metallic, with metal wings fluttering and filtered voices tweeting and calling to each other.

After 19 years as an electronic musician under another guise, I finally decided to create a project which allows me to break away from some of the conventions that I have used elsewhere. I have been experimenting more with sound and to finally produce my own tracks. I use a range of field recordings, found sounds and hardware with minimal processing as I’ve always been interested in how sound can morph into beautiful complex patterns with the limited use of tech and processing. It’s the ‘small sounds’, anomalies, mistakes and the sounds ‘between’ that catch my ear. Many of the pieces I create are based on images and things I see, which act as a type of graphic score and increasingly I am using one field recording solely as the basis for the track I am creating, referring to my music as Sound Pictures. I then create artwork to accompany the tracks.
