HYPNOTISING THE SNAKE

‘View From Above’ Strange things happen. Take yesterday. I’m invited to join the parents for breakfast at a café overlooking the sea. I get these invites once, sometimes twice a week. Sat outside, the sun shining for once, you can see France clearly on days like this. I’m eating my poached eggs on toast. We’re

THE WOLF & THE POSER

‘Hidden Corner’ Like last year and the year before and the year before that, Zoolon never got an Easter Egg. Is the world of eggs trying to tell me something? I’d never noticed it before yesterday. Driving out of town into the countryside there’s a Beefeater franchise type restaurant. I’ve never been there but I

PROPERTY OF PERU

‘The Last Still Frame at The End of Time’ by Zoolon PROPERTY OF PERU The last piece of A4 paper ever floated by on the wind. It wasn’t long before it landed in the playground that once had swings, a roundabout and a climbing frame. Since the end of time the playground had become just

BEFORE & AFTER

‘The Edge of England’ For ages I’ve fancied a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses. The polarized ones. It’s just that I couldn’t ever justify the expense.  Then, last Thursday I’m in Canterbury to get guitar strings and I pass a shop selling just sunglasses, including the Ray Ban range. The sun was out. Cut grass

RUNNING FROM THE SUN

‘A Brand New Tomato Plant’ – A shame I had to be told it was a tomato plant ‘March of The Dead’ – a piece of Sound Art I made using samples and sound manipulation a while back. A bit of dark fun. I miss not having the time to make more of this kind of

‘IGNORING THE MERMAID WALTZ’

‘Ignoring the Mermaid’ by Zoolon  ‘And a song I was writing is left undone I don’t know why I spend my time Writing songs I can’t believe With words that tear and strain to rhyme’ Paul Simon  I know the feeling, plus The Arsenal missed a penalty in the last minute that would have stuffed

Anyway, here’s the improvisation/cover of the Mumford song, ‘The Cave’. Hope you enjoy; View this post on

A BLUE, BLUE SKY

I got told there’s a sign in a Beijing hotel lobby that reads, ‘GOOD APPEARANCE PLEASE NO WATERMELON PLEASE’ What’s all that about? Brilliant. Somehow I’d like to see more random signs like this one. It’s like an untapped art genre. Anyway some music for a Sunday. An ambient instrumental I composed a while back

BRAIN DEAD

‘And?’ I think I’m brain dead. At least that’s what it feels like. I’m getting used to it now. It always happens when I get too busy. I guess it happens to most people when Creativity says, “Stuff this, I’m off – it’s too much like hard work.” So, I’ve gone back to my old
