combined YF session picTwo great days at Yellow Fish Studios working on my new album. The first was with cellists Emily Burridge and Peter Gregson, improvising together. And the second was with Martin Ditcham on drums and percussion. He is the third drummer to work on this album. Pretty much all the rhythmic and harmonic elements are now in place on the project. Now a lot of editing…

New film, The Memory of Objects, now online

The Memory of Objects: Château de Rochebonne France (2014)


You can view the new film on the Film page of this site or on my Vimeo or  YouTube channels

Do objects have a molecular memory retained from extreme events?

This is the first film in my new Memory of Objects series. It was shot on location in the Château de Rochebonne, France. The château was originally built in 1628 but razed to the ground in 1799 during the French Revolution. Later it was shared by two estranged brothers who split the house in two. It was occupied by the German army during World War II. This film explores the objects inside in intimate detail.
