Month: December 2014

A vinyl, some stingrays, and a torn ligament.

I am aware that I consistently open my entries with an apology for the duration since the last, so I’ll make it an end-of-year resolution to stop that, not worry so much, and allow a bit of writing per month to be just fine. I hope you’ll agree.

This morning I was running on a treadmill and nearly keeled over. I think I have injured a ligament, so I am giving myself a quiet day, and I am excited to share all the recent news with you.

Over the past month, a lot has happened. Firstly, The test pressings of Dorothea’s Boat were dispatched, and over the weekend we’ve just had, they were heard, scrutinised, and ultimately approved. The pressing plant has been informed, and production of the final pressing is going ahead. I really cannot wait to share this music with you.

Those of you who backed the crowdfunding project for the album will be receiving it on or before the release date. For those of you who missed the crowdfunder, but would like to get your hands on a copy, it is now available for pre-order in the shop. 

Whilst I’ve been working on the sound design for Of Shark And Man, director David Diley asked me to do a little underwater sound design, and the overall audio mix for A Ray Of Light II, which was preimered at Palma Aquarium, Mallorca, at the end of October to a captivated audience. Now, David has, along with AsociaciĆ³n Ondine, made the film available for you to stream. You don’t even have to leave this page, but please consider visiting to donate something to this great conservation effort. 

That’s all for now, folks!
