Estrada Longa

Record based on an 8 day solo cycling journey, in August 2020, through a long road in Portugal. Throughout each day I would make audio notes of the names of most localities I'd passed. The 8 tracks on this release correspond with each day of the trip, with all the aforementioned names read aloud over a set of volatile synthesis systems.

Volume 2

CD published by We Can Elude Control

Compositions consisting of two sinewaves transmitted through the AM band into a couple of old transistor radios.

The simple signal chain, often carrying frequencies outside of the human earing range, generates a dynamic field of textural noise, resulting from the combination of the signal volatility, overdriving, frequency modulation and its consequent harmonics all interacting with the innate analogue tendencies of the shortwave ether.
