The Stinkhorn EP

I’ve had some viewers ask what the music is in my videos and I use my own music to add some extra atmosphere to my work. You can listen to the music I use via an EP I have created. It’s called the Stinkhorn EP and costs £2 (though you can pay more if you wish). You can access it here:

Or use this handy player to listen to it:

And if you want to download a whole FREE compilation album, you can get that from my webstore too at:

This is the cover to my album "Steady State of Flux"

Something delicate on the verge of change...

I have this folder on my desktop where I drop all the mixes of tracks that I produce. It’s a bit of a virtual slush pile and every so often I have a listen and see what I’ve got. Last night, I realised I had nearly enough for a new collection of tunes, but this time around the collection was a bit more mellower than my previous efforts. So I had a sort through some of my other unused tracks and found a couple that were never used (one track “Sketch of Satie” dates back to 2006) which seemed to fit with the current vibe.

The new album is called “Steady State of Flux” which is a contradiction in itself and I managed to take the picture of the dandelion the other day whilst in the garden. It seemed to illustrate my point, something that is delicate but in a state of immediate flux.

Well there you go. You can visit the album page which is here.

You can listen to the album using the player below and if you feel particularly supportive you might want to buy a digital copy. No? OK, it was worth a try…
