New Free Download Desert Tapes 1984 - 1994 

I've just released a new album called Desert Tapes 1984 - 1994. It's a pre-All India Radio solo album consisting of soundscapes, tape manipulations and lo-fi electronic doodles from the 1980’s to the 1990’s. Most of these songs were originally recorded on reel to reel and cassette tapes and were mastered from those same tapes.
Embrace the lo-fi!

Available now as a free/name your price from Bandcamp or a paid download from iTunes.

Some of you might already have an earlier version of this album which was originally released a few years ago under the title 'Destroy all Demos' with different artwork and tracklisting.

All India Radio Meets Pink Floyd's Roger Waters (Sort Of) 

Sorry I know that headline was a bit click bait-ish. But one of our t-shirts DID make it back stage to meet Roger Waters, Pink Floyd founder and one of my all time music heroes after his show with at the Newport Folk Festival a few days ago. Word is Roger had a good look at the T-shirt. Alas it's the closest I'll ever get!

If you want one of these t-shirts they are available here

 

Ambient Guitar Video Series 3 

The next video in my ambient series is a version of a new song called Sunburst which will appear on the upcoming new album. Sign up to our mailing list for updates on the forthcoming new album

The pedal chain I used is: guitar into a Bad Monkey tube overdrive, Boss Chorus (CE-3), Electro Harmonix Memory Toy analog delay, Strymon Bluesky Reverberator which was stereo out into the cassette recorder.

Ambient Video Series 2 


This is the second video in my little ambient series. Its a slow, expansive version of a new track from the upcoming new album. The Bluesky pedal creates the atmospheric shimmering sound, helped by a long analog delay pedal. The music was recorded on a cassette deck which noticeably changed speed towards the end!

The pedal chain is: guitar into a Bad Monkey tube overdrive (didn't use that one in this video though), Boss Chorus (CE-3), Electro Harmonix Memory Toy analog delay, Strymon Bluesky Reverberator which was stereo out into the cassette recorder.

Playing New Material & Searching For Shimmering Audio Nirvana! 

Here I am playing new material that may make it onto the new album due late 2015. I wanted give my new Bluesky pedal a full work out. It's this pedal that creates the atmospheric shimmering sound you can hear in the video, helped by a long analog delay pedal. The music was recorded on a cassette deck which was a bit fluttery thus some noticeable speed changes throughout the recording!

The Rare Earth Movie World Debut 

The Rare Earth, the futuristic indie film I worked on last year will make its debut on Friday, June 26 2015
If you happen to be in Bendigo Australia come join us at the Star Cinema. Details here

The soundtrack is available now



Press release:

"After almost four years in the making, Bendigo filmmaker Aaron Stevenson is ready to unleash his independent Sci-fi feature film.

The warped tale blends a dystopian future with a bold retelling of Australian history to create a thought­provoking experience on screen.
And while the successfully crowd­funded epic didn’t quite enjoy the mega budget of Mad Max: Fury Road, it does at least pay homage to the pioneering Aussie classic with scenes shot in Broken Hill and Silverton. Along with the stunning desert landscapes, The Rare Earth also features sequences shot in Bendigo, Melbourne, Heathcote, Gippsland and Lake Mungo.

To match the visuals, legendary musicians Steve Kilbey (from iconic Aussie band The Church) and Martin Kennedy (All India Radio) produced a unique, brooding soundtrack that adds further depth to the film.

The Star Cinema screening is the world premiere, with the film launching the same day on video­on­demand platforms like Amazon, Vimeo and VHX"

Four Three 

This is the video I made for Four Three (from the album Echo Other) nearly 10 years ago. It was a sorta take on sci-fi B-movies. Yesterday I recorded vocals by Selena Cross (who sang on Four Three) for the forthcoming new album which will be in many ways a sequel to Four Three and the Echo Other album. More news on the new album soon. In the meantime, enjoy the B-movie fun:
