So Below is a live performance piece for a chapel or resonant space, with the option of using various instruments. It was first performed in 2019 at the Glasgow University Chapel, supported by Cryptic, and with Maarten Vos on cello.

The setup is for an array of speakers around the space, with the sound moving through the room. It is performed in the dark, or as near-dark as can be achieved, and the focus is on the sound rather than the performance. This recording has been adapted to stereo.

It will be available only on Bandcamp.

Cello: Maarten Vos

Equipment: Cello, Voice, Monochord, Symbolic Sound Kyma, Looper

Software: Ableton Live, Madrona Labs Kaivo, Madrona Labs Aalto

Thanks to PRS Foundation for funding

and Cryptic for the support.

There is now a new page on the website detailing all the current performances and installations. Hopefully it makes it clearer what I’m up to. It is available from the menu on the left. The individual projects are listed underneath.

All are available for bookings. Details are on the individual pages.

I am still in the process of updating the website with releases etc, but will all be clear soon I hope!

New work this year, made in collaboration with artist Heather Lander for Cryptic. It’s a physical installation with intricate surround sound and a live performance element.

‘Primordial Waters’ will premiere as part of Sonic-A in Glasgow this week, appropriately on 31st October (Samhain of the Celtic calendar), concerned as it is with Celtic mythology and practice, and with the natural world in all its dimensions.

It is being performed in its full form at least twice, on 31st October and 1st November at the Tramway in Glasgow at 9pm. It will also remain setup as a short-form installation without the live elements in Tramway during the day of the 1st. You can get tickets here.
