PLURAL

Plural
Unperceived Records, 2015

 

A flowing and cohesive collection of 4 tracks that follows a more familiar post-rock/neo-classical path without diluting the fundamental techniques I use to make sound. Flying birds are processed to become the haunting introduction to Fault Lines (which gives way to full post-rock epic). Waves recorded just north of Byron Bay become the rattling, noise-laden foundation of Holograms (Y). Grand piano and violin are nestled amongst unrecognisable sonic mush harvested from Notre Dame on the heart-wrenchingly gorgeous Pollen.

Richard Allen from A Closer Listen described Plural as an album of flow, and noted "...as it bleeds into the contemplative Pollen, the mind turns from discernment to surrender: a note can be worth a thousand words."

MEASUREMENT

Measurement
Independent, 2014

 

This debut EP of 4 songs is at times a challenging listen, but I think it's always beautiful and considered. Ride out the tough times, the rewards are there. Crushed leaves are stretched to become the entire ambient wash on piano-based Lumen. The knock of a finger against a microphone is transformed into the cacophonous middle passage in Decibel. Electric piano and slide guitar sit amongst a cinematic soundscape made from unrecognisable household objects on Deep North.

Chris Cobcroft from 4ZZZ FM wrote of Measurement "A work of depth ... - there's plenty to go back and dig through. At its best, those depths are found in the atmosphere of ambient, the rippling, raw power of post-rock and make these tried and tested sounds seem like they're worth coming back to again."
