Happy New Year To All,

My all is in writing music, performance and marking.I'm working on my latest piece for vinyl release.The B Side of Girl released by Entr'acte later on this year.

Studio is warm , outside is very cold , sounds are organic , bass driven and rhythmic . Thinking about Blake and Bacherlard , more so blake's strange pictures which go alongside his poems and Bachalerd's micro/ macro combining with sound and domesticity.
I must go to gym.

Looking forward to 2011,
Jo

Black and White
Published 17 January 2011 by JT


I was invited to an amazing event last monday organised by the Sound fjord Gallery. It was a Piano Tuning and Listening by Ken Bodden.

The event seemed to very delicately draw together discipline, expertise and musical ritual. It was beautiful and absolutely ear cleansing.
Thank you,

Live Sets Coming up

22nd Old Police Station 11pm Deptford

good week,
Jo
