Heading to a police cell at The Island in Bristol for a 48 hour residency to develop the piece Chat Room with Rebecca O’Brien. We will be broadcasting the whole time into an internet sex chatroom and there is an open call for artists to join us.

Rushmore’s debut album that I mixed in the Neve Room at SSR London out now.
“His most concise and holistic body of work to date. Spanning a wider range of styles and influences than ever before, digging deep into his musical influences beyond typical club music.”
I have worked with Becky before on Chat Room.
“The release flows from two years out On the Corner and features the innovative and inspiring collaborators that have run with the label’s energy on this amble. The A side – ‘South of the River’ is a collection of diverse versions of tracks from Collocutor’s acclaimed debut ‘Instead’ and the flip journeys with experimental, international electronics and cosmic vibes.”

Mine and Rich Thair’s up-until-very-recently anonymous Petwo Evans project has made a mix for Rob Booth’s well respected Electronic Explorations series. The mix features a lot of new unreleased material that was mainly recorded whilst on residency at the Pontadawe Arts Center earlier this year.
Rebecca 0’Brien and myself will be performing and updated version of our Chat Room dance piece at EXHIBITIONS @ Rich Mix, Bethnal Green this Sunday (29th Nov).
Chat Room is a live improvised dance and audio performance made by manipulating recorded and live audio streams sourced from internet sex chat rooms and performed live back into one. More info HERE.
EXHIBITIONS is a platform for new and experimental work in progress offering emerging artists a space in which to show and test their ideas in development. At the same time it offers audiences the opportunity to see these ideas in their most, raw, risky and exciting form. More info HERE.
Here is some dodgy mobile phone footage from the last performance at XOYO –
