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

RELICS OF THE PAST

‘Black Knight, Dark Day’ GET LOST A strange voice talking at me Says they know all there is to know Forgetting I’m not an android Me? I’m just a one man show   You can walk me to the cliff edge I might surprise you and take the leap One thing is for certain I’ll

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

WHERE HAVE ALL THE RAINBOWS GONE?

(Above, me having a think about lost rainbows, all the time taking care not to fall off the edge of the cliff into a watery grave) WHERE HAVE ALL THE RAINBOWS GONE? On the day the Ice Caps melted The sun swallowed a swollen sea No rain from Africa to Eurasia No springtime blossom on

PUTTING A SIMPLE VERSE TO SONG

First a quick view of the evolution of my ‘Dream Rescuer’ album’s cover art. I forgot I still had these sample shots. Above, one of the source photos; below the final cover. Anyhow, to the point. If you take the acoustic route, then verse words transfer reasonably easily into song, especially so the ballad.  The
