Laurie Anderson Wise Women on BBC Radio 6 Music

I’ve been listening to this show on and off since it was broadcast on Christmas day last year and it really is worth listening to. Not only are there some very interesting pieces that she’s included, but it gives you a rare insight into what sorts of music Laurie Anderson finds moving.

It’s easy enough to find on iPlayer Radio if you’re interested.

Good luck Intermorphic

I really liked this post from Intermorphic about what they’ve been doing this year and what they have planned for 2016. I’ve been a fan of theirs for many years now. In fact, probably approaching 10 years now. I’ve seen them go through several iterations and still keep going. I hope that they keep flying the flag for generative music for many years to come.

Good luck guys.

Favourite pictures of 2015 … meeting Nic Collins

Me and Nic Collins
Me and Nic Collins

This was back in January this year. I’ve been a fan of his work and of his genius book on circuit bending and making musical instruments. I’ve seen him live a couple of times now ad he’s always great. I even did a workshop with him years ago and it was excellent. So I got myself a selfie with Nic Collins! Why wouldn’t you?

That’s amazing, 19 years of Disquiet

It is a truly amazing thing that Disquiet has been going for 19 years now. I’m in awe. To maintain and develop such and amazing site for that long is a real achievement. I have to take my hat off to Marc for doing it.

Of course he has the best taste too, his choice of people to interview is impeccable! Of course I would say that, wouldn’t I!

The SoundLab Play Space Chat Zone

I love being involved in working with Heart n Soul on events like the Play Space. The downside for me is that I don’t get to be a visitor or an audience member at these events and I don’t get to participate in that way. It’s a shame as there’s always stuff going on that I miss, and with the Play Space there was huge amount that I missed.

One area I would’ve really like to have been at was the Chat Zone where Justin talked to some really interesting people on a range of topics around accessible music. I think it was recorded and I’d love to hear that recording if possible.

If I can get my hands on it I may even get it posted somewhere too.

Thanks to everyone who supported my Movember campaign

I really really appreciate the support from everyone who contributed to my campaign this year. Whilst I didn’t hit my goal in the end, I didn’t do too badly, so I’m glad that I did it again this year. That’s four years on the go for me and Movember.

Will I do it next year? Who knows, we’ll just have to wait and see. Will I keep the moustache? Maybe …
