New Album: Other World Music Vol.II

The second volume of my Other World Music series, under my own name, has been released.

Again, it draws its influences from various musical traditions and forms and incorporates some of the research of my NHS music fellowship this year.

 

I am just pressing up tapes and releasing them myself although they will also be in shops such as Boomkat sometime around the middle of December.

It is limited to a run of 111.

You can buy it from my website here:

CØV – Transcending

We have had to wait a long time to announce this, as we have been getting together the funding and a coordinating with various people to make it happen, but finally it is in the action stages.

Transcending is a new large-scale project that will explore the transformative power of light and sound in a spiritual context, incorporating ideas from the earliest religious practice to the latest scientific research in neuropsychology. It will initially be performed in Glasgow’s St Mungo’s Cathedral, one of the great Medieval buildings of Scotland.

St Mungos Quire To Nave

I will be working alongside Florence To, who has a pretty incredible back catalogue of visuals and installations (www.florence-to.com), and who I have worked with on several occasions before. We have decided to create our combined efforts under the name of CøV.

Further details will be announced in due course.

We are very grateful to the PRS Foundation for their support.
