Cutlasses and R.Dyer live in the Lockdown Lounge

Posted on May 24, 2020

Thanks to all of that ‘attended’ our performance last night. Combining a fairly involved audio setup with a 2 camera visual setup was quite tricky, and I was a little nervous about it all, but it all seemed to go down ok.     Gear: Everything in this case is DIY (including the case itself). […]

Live stream

Posted on May 22, 2020

R.Dyer and myself were supposed to do a live show last month at the Rose Hill, but it was cancelled for obvious reasons. Why not watch us from the comfort of your own sofa instead, perhaps with a warming glass of Brandy? Playing Saturday 23rd May 8:30 UK time. https://www.youtube.com/cutlasses/live

First workshop done

Posted on October 20, 2019

Thanks to everyone who came to my ‘Digital Audio with Microcontrollers Workshop’ last weekend. I hope everyone had as much fun as I did! The first workshop sold out pretty quickly, so we ended up running another one back to back. A pretty exhausting day, but definitely a rewarding one. I was pleasantly surprised how […]

BERLIN!

Posted on May 15, 2019

Just back from visiting Berlin. Went to Superbooth, met some lovely people, played the Koma Elektronik afterparty, and generally had a wonderful time. As you can see in the photo below, I finished my eurorack case off. I’ll add more details about the new modules soon. Airport security were slightly baffled by the objects in […]

On Saturday (1st December) I was up in London at the House of Vans, speaking about getting started in digital module design for Eurorack. It was a really fun day. My talk was fairly well attended and I got some positive comments and questions which is always a bonus. The venue itself doubles as a […]

Electromagnetic Field Festival 2018

Posted on September 3, 2018

By the time I was made aware of Electromagnetic Field earlier in the year it had already sold out. My cunning plan to secure a ticket by proposing a talk worked though, and this weekend I got to go and do it. It was absolutely unlike any festival I’ve ever attended. In equal parts inspiring, […]

Speaking at EMF 2018

Posted on August 19, 2018

I’m really excited to announce I’m going to be speaking, and possibly performing at Electromagnetic Field festival. I’ll be doing a talk about DIY electronic instruments. Electromagnetic Field https://www.emfcamp.org/ is a non-profit festival for hackers, artists, geeks, crafters, scientists, and engineers. Sounds amazing! Every camper gets electricity and broadband piped directly to their tent! I’ve […]
