With some sadness, I learned yesterday that Suburban Electrification is not going to be released as originally intended. To those of you who bought it from the label, I’m grateful, but I’m also sorry to disappoint you. I understand refunds will be given. For others who were keen to hear the album, I’ve taken the decision to make it available for free download. There’s an … Continue reading An apology
This is a new piece, which I put together from three separate field recordings of rooms at home, available free for stream or download. It’s quite dense (and lengthy – 28 minutes) but uses very little by way of extras: there’s only minimal EQ and gain applied. I’m not sure what to think of the finished article… Continue reading 3Kammer

This is a wonderful new album by Glenn Bach entitled Radia. Here’s how Glenn describes the album: With this new project, Radia, Glenn Bach builds quiet soundscapes from guitar … Continue reading Radia; 2012; and February tomorrow
As the wind howls around us here and the slates rattle ominously over the backdrop of a record I’m realising I first heard and loved more than 25 years ago—certain parts of which still make my spine tingle with happiness—one thing strikes me: there’s nothing as life-affirming as finally meeting people you’ve known previously only through the grace of that magical flow of electrons and … Continue reading Vive l’amitié!
My great friend Andrew Paine is releasing a new tape of mine Empty Transmissions as part of his ever-eclectic Sonic Oyster roster. It will be released on 29 August. There are just 50 copies of this, in wraparound paper sleeves, and I’m told that there are only 8 or so of these left from the label. You can pre-order it here. I will have a … Continue reading Empty Transmissions
