Songs recorded on a Zoom H4N at Dodgson Wood, Coniston, and London, The British Isles. As part of the Natives residency project.
These songs were written and recorded in 4 days, mostly outside in the woods, near a stream (which you can hear!). Overdubs were done back at home in London.
I’m working on a book documenting the residency which will be out in March, so this is a little preview…
A little demo of a new song. Recorded at home recently. I’ve been writing a new bunch of songs. More to come…
Some bits of collage
Some sketchbook scans from the end of last year.
You Are The Friction
Hey look! I can now legitimately claim to be a writer.
You Are The Friction is an anthology of collaborative short fiction and illustration. It’s a small, bright red record of what happens when you introduce twelve writers to twelve illustrators, light a match, and run in the opposite direction. Twelve short stories inspired by illustrations, twelve illustrations inspired by short stories, all collected in a handsome paperback edition published by Sing Statistics.
I was paired up with the wonderful Maxwell Holyoke Hirsch. Beautiful stuff!
I received my wrapping paper designs yesterday from Wrap. Very nice they look too. Here are some shots. It was nice to take some of my work into surface pattering, something i’d like to do more of…
