New EP

Posted on September 26, 2020

My new EP, “The Days That Remain And Those That Follow” is available now! This EP was recorded in the first half of 2020 and reflects at a macroscopic scale, on the insanely tumultuous events of the year, but on a more personal level it echoes the anxiety and joy of impending parenthood. The somewhat […]

RadioDrum

Posted on February 16, 2020

Recently, I’ve been working on a new firmware for the RadioMusic by MusicThing Modular.  I wanted to get some drums into my case using as little HP as possible, so came up with this. The drum patterns are stored as text files on the SD card. Currently it only supports one pattern, going to be […]

Recovering and recording

Posted on October 24, 2018

I’ve been off work recovering from an inner ear operation, which I might talk about more in the future. In between lying on the sofa and general convalescing I’ve managed to finish a new track. The first thing I’ve actually completed since I released the album.

DIY Sriracha Eurorack Case

Posted on November 27, 2017

This weekend I built a DIY Euroack case out of a cheap tin lunchbox from eBay. I want this case to house some of my Teensy based modules and form an all-in-one guitar focused effects box. The project was reasonably straightforward. I used one of these power boards which supplies +12v/-12V from a 14-24V DC power supply. […]

Cutlasses Circuit Cave Complete
