A few weeks ago we put on a mini Stench Festival, with 2 nights of electronic music at The Great Central Gallery, Leicester. The first night was curated by Bathysphere with peformances from Asmo, Neil Unreal, Sam Dodson and myself. The second night was hosted by PVC, with performances from BJ Cole VS Myoptik, Phaelah, Samual and the Dragons, Glatze and Wassim. With sound system prived by the Biscuit Tin Sound System. The gig was broadcast live on Ustream and the video above is from the first night, filmed by Jaqueline Cheval.

I’ve recently bought a Korg Zero4 DJ mixer and I’m using it with Ableton and Traktor Scratch Pro. I’ve been spending a lot of time composing and I use this gear and DJ techniques to realise my music in performance. This gig was my first opportunity to try it out in performance. Thanks to all the event organisers for a great weekend of gigs!

Collaboration with DJ Sniff and Dushume

In August I visited Steim in Amsterdam as part of my MA research and jammed with DJ Sniff and Amit Patel (Dushume). Steim are visiting De Montfort University next week and will be performing as part of the MTI concert series. There will be solo performances by DJ Sniff and Byungjun Kwon and an improvisation by Sniff, Amit and myself in the second half.

I’m looking forward to it!
