This is a broad overview of my activities as a composer, performer, and sound artist.

For information on records and other releases, please view the releases tag here. Some of my music is published on my Bandcamp page.

I maintain a big list of every show I can remember doing. It gets updated with new shows and occasionally I remember or am reminded of some ancient performance I forgot about.

Solo Work

Recently, I’ve had a piece out on this compilation from Hard Return combining computer blips with uilleann pipes:

And before that, I contributed a piece to a benefit compilation raising money for those affected by a mass shooting in Lewiston, Maine, USA:

My solo work ranges from fingerstyle guitar in the tradition of players like John Fahey and Robbie Basho, through songs for voice and guitar (owing much to artists like Joni Mitchell and Judee Sill). I also work with field recordings (recently in collaboration with the artist and writer, Éireann Lorsung), electronics, and computer software like Pure Data and SuperCollider.

I’ve started a project of publishing short field recordings on my blog. You can check those out by clicking here.

In the early days of the pandemic I contributed this improvisation to a benefit compilation:

So Said So

A recent band project, So Said So is a punk band along the lines of groups like Boston’s Karate and Louisville’s The For Carnation.

Some Performances

I had the great privilege of playing bass with my friend and teacher, Gustavo Aguilar, for a few performances celebrating Max Roach’s We Insist!. One of these performances was documented and is available to view below.

For several years I played guitar for a noisy punk band called Family Planning. We had the pleasure to play many shows with some of our favourite bands. Here is an excerpt from a performance we did with the band Deerhoof in Boston.
