Over 18 people have died as over 40 inches of snow fell on the eastern seaboard of the United States. It was the second largest in New York City, where over 29 inches fell, since 1869… This recording was made in Williamsburg, Brooklyn using a Zoom iQ6 microphone and iPad Air 2.
My debut episode of Touch Radio was released today. A 25+ minute field recording of the winter storm Jonas, this was recorded inside my apartment whilst snow battered the window in front of the microphone.

Since early October, Mike Harding (Touch) has been presenting Long Wave, a radio programme on London’s Resonance 104.4 FM. Mike kindly gave me the opportunity to produce an entire episode of the series, which I naturally took. My episode, Long Wave 12 – The Cap Report, airs on December 24, 2013 at 10.30 p.m. GMT (5.30 p.m. for my NYC friends, 4.30 p.m. for my Chicago friends and so on).
The Cap Report features a selection of field recordings that I collected in Japan during September and October 2013, as well as an extended freak out on the Otamatone and the Korg Monotron Duo. What started out as an intention to present a few of my field recordings along with a DJ mix, turned into an entirely original 90 minute audio piece. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed producing it.
Whilst I encourage you to listen live on Resonance 104.4 FM (which you can do online) with your friends and family as you await the arrival of Krampus, the episode will be made available on the Long Wave site in the near future. I’ll also be sure to upload it to various dark recesses of the internet so that it may haunt your nightmares for years to come.
I’ve been so remiss in posting lately that I’ve not only had the honor of contributing a photograph to Touch Radio 64, but the just-released Touch Radio 74 as well. The former is a fascinating field recording of the songs of wolves by Yannick Dauby, whilst the latter is a piece by one of my favorite electronic musicians, CM von Hausswolff.
Please take the time to listen and enjoy these recent instalments in a fantastic podcast series. You can subscribe to Touch Radio via iTunes or you can stream all episodes directly from the Touch iPhone app (which I helped make—sorry that I still haven’t posted about that!).
Many thanks to Mike Harding for his continued encouragement of my artistic pursuits as well as to Jon Wozencroft for always having been a visual inspiration to me.
Do you like pubs? I like pubs. Who doesn’t like pubs?
When I lived in London, I spent most of my time in them. As you do.
The good people at Touch have just released the latest installment in their exceptional Touch Radio podcast series, Pub. They were kind enough to pay me the honor of using the above photograph of mine as the visual counterpart to this episode. As a longtime follower of their always brilliant releases, I am massively thrilled to have my work presented alongside theirs.
The recording is of secret origin, but I do know one thing that I am permitted to tell you: it was recorded in a London pub. It’s Friday, so have a pint of ale, listen to Pub and allow yourself to enter this pub. It’s a friendly, lively place.
Another pint of Adnams, please!
