‘GUNPOWDER & TREASON’

This is one of my early explorations in Sound Art from 2013. My idea was to create of piece of art using ‘found sound’ recorded during the day in a field where that evening a firework display was taking place and then add more samples during the actual display.  Daft as it might sound, what

ZOOLON’S ESCAPE

Brian, ‘The Don of The Sparrow Mafia’ wasn’t there at first. There were twenty or so of his mob flying from table to table trying to nick a few crumbs here and there, that’s all. Then, when he eventually showed up, all the other bloke sparrows did a runner and as ever his harem of

FROM ECHOES TO DOWNLOADS

(above, a photo I took in Ramsgate for no particular reason)  Zoolon’s brief take on, ‘From Echoes to Downloads’. We all take for granted that we can download whatever music we like. Even vinyl has made a spectacular comeback, plus CD’s are still selling well.  What interests me is just when was it the case

RANDOM EVENTS IN THE LIFE OF ZOOLON

BRIAN THE SPARROW’S BUTT I first met Brian the Sparrow about a month ago. Spring was beginning to happen. The day was just about warm, so I was sat outside having a breakfast of hot chocolate and a croissant. When I’d finished   eating I left a few croissant crumbs on my plate. It was at

NO ‘SONG OF LOVE’ TODAY

(written following the tragic events in London yesterday, a diary entry, not a poem or lyric) Wearing headphones on a windy, rainy afternoon, Safe, warm, tickling a keyboard and lost in composition, Just trying to conjure up a new ‘song of love’ to sing, While outside, and far away from here, in The Smoke, Another

THE RANDOM ‘SPOT’ OF ZOOLON

(pic taken in those glorious days of hope; the days before the ‘spot’ arrived)  How can anyone run a business, even an online business like mine, if they are cursed with a ‘spot’? I eat healthily, work out in the gym, rarely drink any alcohol, don’t smoke or take drugs and have an OCD thing

MARCH OF THE DEAD

(The picture is a photo inside a cave. I took it somewhere in the middle of France) For the first time since mine died I got to take a dog for a short walk over the weekend. A small, cool dog called Barney. Inevitably, I had a couple of random thoughts while walking him. Well,

WHAT NEXT?

Today, was the day a statue grew out of my head, and all the while the police were waiting, patiently waiting in the background, to arrest the mutant that was me. WHAT NEXT? I was lost somewhere in life’s whirlpool, Drowning in a sea of sweet dreams, Somehow rescued, I looked all around me, Saw

WHY?

“I may well have seen the light, but I question the point of a kettle when I drink neither tea nor coffee” (I think this is meant to be a deep philosophical type random thought, but I never really know with these things. That’s a cool light in the kettle though) WHY? Counting shadows in

WORLD OF SHADOWS

  Another pic from the Festival of Marionettes held in Charleville-Mezieres, Ardennes, France. It’s on again this September and I shall try to get back there. The word surreal doesn’t do it justice. Anyhow, I haven’t posted any music lately so I thought I’d make amends. I’ve already posted several songs from my old concept
