To finish off 2 days of workshops at The Whitechapel Gallery with local secondary school students, I’ll be doing a performance (open to the public) with participants on Thurs 14th Jan at 3pm. The workshops are called Sound without Music and we’ll be looking at non-traditional and experimental ways of exploring, presenting and performing sound based works. The performance will include some of the stuff we’ve covered in the workshops. I’m looking forward to performing with a group of young people that have never seen, used or experienced any of what we’ll be looking at before.
This workshop and performance is to accompany the exhibition Luke Fowler and Mark Fell: Computers and Cooperative Music-Making (23 October 2015-7 February 2016) at The Whitechapel Gallery, which looks at how the use of computers began to shape music-making through experimentation with unfamiliar techniques.
Thursday 14th January | 3pm | Free
Creative Studio, The Whitechapel Gallery, 77-82 Whitechapel High St, London E1 7QX

Phil Julian and I will be opening for Anthony Childs (Surgeon) and Ali Wade’s collaborative A/V performance at Cafe OTO on Monday 30th November.
I’ve started a Bandcamp page and started by posting up a few old out-of-print releases. I’ve uploaded the ‘Pastel Blue and Clinical White’ C20 cassette from 2010, the ‘Chaotic Analogue Synthesis #1′ studies CDR from 2011 (which includes an extra track) and the ‘Silt’ C20 which came out on Beartown Records in 2012. More to come.

I’ve contributed a sound work to Tom Mudd‘s CONTROL Installation which will be at Cafe OTO Project Space from 9th-13th September. It’s a really interesting work and features a great array of artists. More info on the installation:
“CONTROL is an interactive installation exploring the relationships between artists, music, and musical artifacts. It attempts to call attention to the role that the musical artifacts play in developing musical ideas. A single dial is connected to a single speaker, but the relationship between the two is not fixed; it flits between a range of possibilities composed by a diverse range of artists. Visitors are invited to use the dial to make sounds, and to thus explore the links between their actions, the limits of the dial, and the musical ideas embedded in the software by the artists.”
