World Fair by Human Greed OUT NOW

Staggeringly beautiful album to which I contributed drone singing and spoken text. Watch and listen to the video for "Waiting in a Car" HERE

"the songcraft has its roots partly in the 16th century – from where also arises the preoccupation with melancholy and mortality- and there is much to be owed to the second law of thermodynamics, entropy, the singularity and heat death of the observable universe. That is all touched upon lightly, though I was keen to explore the potential for that science to be represented in a devotional mode more associated with faith." - Michael Begg

NOT HERE NOT NOW

the new Swans live album, Not Here/Not Now is finally available to purchase:
http://younggodrecords.com/home/not-here-not-now-handmade-release


This is a major blood/sweat/tears project for all those involved. My part in it is detailed below. If you are interested in purchasing one, act FAST - last time they sold out fast.

first, there came a drawing (based on M Gira's explicit instructions) which I then carved into a soft linoleum block. 

second step: painting a white circle on 2,100 cd envelopes

third step: printing the painted enveloped with the lino-cut block, finished off with a signature and edition number. phew. yes, this is how I spent the two weeks after my honeymoon...which, yes, we cut short to meet the deadline.

Work has started on new Congregation series: skies taken from my new East Anglian home will serve as backgrounds for undulating masses of starlings, similar to what the Danish call "Black Suns". The finished works will be exhibited in La Spezia, Italy in late February alongside new & old Masters.
