I’m thrilled to announce I landed some music/sound design in this trailer for Alien: Covenant. I’ve always loved the movies, & remember secretly recording Aliens on VHS aged 8, then scaring the shit out of myself & my buddies. It’s an honour to be even a small part of this series. Thanks to Pusher for the hook-up!
Scrap Yard – industrial recording
I really enjoyed visiting a scrapyard to record some big industrial smash sounds. Heavy drums? How about 1.5 Tonnes smashing down on cars & industrial bins? Quite weighty.
Hear the results on my E.P. “Where’s The Humanity“, “Built From Memories” and “In Dreams”
Thanks to Will & Smash for letting it happen 🙂
Electronic Music Pioneer Raymond Scott’s birth-week – Cyclic Bits remix album
It’s the birth-week of legendary innovator in electronic music, the pioneer Raymond Scott, His birth-week 106 years ago anyway…
So it seems a good time to mention the first Raymond Scott remix album was commissioned by Ergo Phizmiz back in 2009 for Chinstrap music Cyclic Bits:The Raymond Scott Variations
It’s 16 of Raymond’s best Bits remixed by 16 experimental artists. Listen to the Automated Acoustics remix of “Lullaby”.
From the album’s website:
“Cyclic Bits” is the first remix album of the music of remarkable composer and inventor Raymond Scott.
This album is a series of reinventions of the work of a true musical maverick, remixed by a host of today’s most inventive musical mavericks. The diversity of the release reflects the profound influence Scott’s work has had on composers working across the board of styles and approaches.
Originally created as a special for Ergo Phizmiz’s Phuj Phactory on WFMU, a projected release never happened.
This, at last, is it.
Although this work is FMA licensed, please contact the individual artists regarding any usage permissions.

Back from the ether
Hello, thanks for checking in.
After a bit of a gap, I’m excited about starting to release some tracks again. They’ll be coming out on Alternative Blueprint Records
I’ve been producing various stuff, but didn’t have the time or headspace to release anything for a while. Life got crazy, & my Audio Mastering work took over..
Coming up is a stripped back, direct sound…. Live cello & violin. Analogue acid squelch. Piano. Glistening pads. Organ. Heavy bass. Gossamer touch. Cinematic landscapes. Gruff vocals to the moon.
A couple of new tracks here
